What Our Entrepreneurs are Saying
“Having the support [from LAUNCH] and knowing you have people out there on your team who you can go to when you don’t feel like making that call or doing that thing - it’s HUGE.”
“I could not afford to go back to school, but LAUNCH made it possible for me to make my dream come true.”
"Before enrolling in the Business Entrepreneurship Academy, I had no prior knowledge of entrepreneurship or business. During the 10 week course, I learned essential information about organizing and operating a business."
