What Our Entrepreneurs are Saying
“LAUNCH has been a very integral part in Royal Transportation, as they have been by my side making sure I reach the goals I set for my business. My experience with LAUNCH staff has been like no other. I’ve been able to connect and meet people that I never would have if I had not taken the course. I’m also grateful for the friendships I have made along the way. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything.”
“Even though I had already started my business before enrolling in the Business Entrepreneurship Academy, LAUNCH played, and continues to play, a fundamental part of how I am managing my business.”
“We still talk to each other. We know about each other’s difficulties and in fact, to be honest, the reason I’m still in it now and have survived is because of the people I met at LAUNCH. I’ve learned a lot from them.”
