WHAT IS LAUNCH?
As our country reinvents itself, new businesses are being born every day and support structures are key to the viability of these businesses. LAUNCH offers business training, support, and affordable resources to underserved entrepreneurs, empowering them to create sustainable, successful businesses allowing their families and communities to thrive.
What Our Entrepreneurs are Saying
“I wouldn't be in the position I'm in with my business right now without LAUNCH. The class taught me my target market, hourly rate, startup costs and how to get my business license and insurance. It helped me eliminate the struggle to establish a foundation for my business. LAUNCH also connected me with people who could give me insight for my business.”
“When life happens and we get scared, discouraged or just don’t know what to do next, the members of the LAUNCH family are always there for encouragement and help with direction.”
Susan M. Freeman
“During my experience in the 10-week course, I was taught the beauty of networking, time management and the basis of operating a business. One particularly great lesson for me was figuring out my break-even point and making a profit.”
