What Our Entrepreneurs are Saying
“My LAUNCH class started out as several strangers talking about their dreams and goals as future business owners. In the end, we became each other's’ cheerleaders, friends and family. Although I’ve finished class, I still refer to my course manual and talk to the people at LAUNCH. When you graduate from the 10-week course it doesn’t end there. LAUNCH continues to help you along your journey.”
“My business was already operating when I started LAUNCH. The course was worth my time as I learned how to manage product cost, caring for each customer, and business management skills."
“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.”
