Welcome to NY Contractor JumpStart

New York Contractor JumpStart, or JumpStart, follows an easy 3-Step process to help minority, women and veteran-owned contractors pre-qualify for bonding, grow business capacity through connections to contract opportunities, and build financial presentation to access more capital.

  1. Step 1: Prequalify for Bonding to Compete for Larger Projects
    Not knowing how much bonding your firm can qualify for limits opportunities for growth. JumpStart provides a quick, free assessment of bond-ability through our partner The Cayemitte Group, an MBE full service insurance and surety bond broker.
  2. Step 2: Contract Opportunities in NY
    An MBDA NY Business Center consultant will meet with you to learn more about your business with a goal of connecting you with contract opportunities in the tri-state area.
  3. Step 3: Qualifying for Bonding & Capital Access
    JumpStart provides resources for firms that do not qualify for their desired level of bonding. An analyst at
    Minority Business Development Institute (MBDI) creates bondable contractors and can help your firm become bond-ready.
    Green Path Debt Solutions can help you improve your personal credit score so you can access capital and higher bonding limits.
