What Our Entrepreneurs are Saying
“LAUNCH is not an enabler but an empowerer. The program empowered us to do what we were setting forth to do. [LAUNCH] didn’t do it for us.”
"The tools that you get out of the [LAUNCH CHA] program for the money you spend to get the information you do is unheard of"
"LAUNCH is invaluable for anyone who is wanting to start a business in the Chattanooga area."
