JumpStart Wireless Raises $500,000 Seed Investment Round

Apr 18, 2001, 01:00 ET from JumpStart Wireless

    BOCA RATON, Fla., April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- JumpStart Wireless Corporation,
 provider of wireless application services to support front-line mobile
 workers, today announced that it has raised $500,000 in a seed round of
 financing.
     JumpStart Wireless puts mobile field workers in productive, instant and
 wireless communication with headquarters and other field and dispatched
 workers. Large companies like FedEx and Sears significantly improve
 productivity and customer service with constant wireless contact between
 mobile workers and the headquarters. JumpStart brings the same productivity
 and customer service gains to businesses of any size.
     "We are delighted, " said Jeff Bonar, CEO, "that even in this less-than-
 ideal investment climate we are able to raise this round and move ahead with
 our business plan. We use revolutionary technology to serve vast new markets.
 That, married to a sound business with solid distribution partners makes sense
 no matter what the climate."  He added that JumpStart has already begun
 discussions with individuals and institutions about a next round of financing.
     "JumpStart has figured out how to make wireless applications cheap and
 easy -- no programmers required. This is a breakthrough for smaller
 businesses," said Edward Engler CEO of Summa VentureWorks, a lead investor in
 the round. "JumpStart has invented a new category, opening up a new world of
 wireless applications for an immense new world of customers."
     JumpStart Wireless provides a suite of wireless application software to
 support mobile workers. Unlike conventional wireless approaches, requiring
 programming teams and extensive system integration, JumpStart applications
 require no programmers. They are easily built by small and medium businesses
 and sold through wireless carriers and other resellers. JumpStart applications
 can run on a wide range of wireless devices including web-connected portable
 phones, two-way email enabled pagers, and Personal Digital Assistants, such as
 the Palm(R) or Microsoft's Pocket PC(R).
     JumpStart Wireless provides the only wireless application solution that is
 affordable and easy to implement.
     JumpStart Wireless Corporation is headquartered at 398 West Camino Gardens
 Boulevard, Suite 204, Boca Raton, Florida 33432.  For more information, please
