JASIRI selects, develops and invests in high-potential aspiring entrepreneurs


We identify and remove potential stumbling blocks on the entrepreneurial journey. Our programs take participants from idea generation to venture creation. JASIRI believes that entrepreneurial teams are at the heart of new venture creation and provide the entrepreneur with access to a diverse group of potential co-founders.

The JASIRI TALENT INVESTOR seeks individuals who display high potential to create high growth ventures. This is a fully funded one-year program that supports individuals to find co-founders, develop a market-creating innovation, and launch a company. We aim to remove barriers on an individual, team, business, and financial level.


The JASIRI ACCELERATOR invests in and supports companies with market creating-innovations.
