What Our Entrepreneurs Are Saying
“LAUNCH was an integral part of getting my business started. They helped me answer the questions of how, when, where and why. During the 10-week course, I was able to lay out a plan and move forward.”
“LAUNCH has been a true asset by putting everything into perspective, providing mentorship, being there to answer questions and assisting in areas where you are weak.”
“The 10-week Business Entrepreneurship Academy gave me the push I needed to go after my dreams. I never would have started The Springs House of Hope if I had not had been shown how hard work and help from people that believe in you can get you through the challenges that you face when starting a business.”
