What Our Entrepreneurs are Saying
Susan M. Freeman
“During my experience in the 10-week course, I was taught the beauty of networking, time management and the basis of operating a business. One particularly great lesson for me was figuring out my break-even point and making a profit.”
“LAUNCH allowed me to create a business plan that would be the start of something incredible, and provided essential strategies that enabled me to reach my objectives. During this 10-week course, we were provided with knowledgeable individuals who were eager to assist our developments. We were allowed to brainstorm and collaborate amongst people who were welcoming and thrilled to learn...An amazing and purposeful journey is truly what LAUNCH provided for me during my development of The Passage.”
“LAUNCH was an integral part of getting me started. I thought it was a very positive experience, and a great community was created out of the class."
