Case Studies:


"Having dedicated time to work on myself and my business without having to worry about income was a bonus too!"


"There is so much help tailored to help your business grow such as access to a business advisor and business coaching."


"I noticed a lot of women aren't in business and I think I wanted to inspire young girls that they can do it too!"


"I have found the community aspect of launch to be really supportive and I look forward to coming on campus for the launch sessions each week."


"It can be difficult but businesses are run by regular people and there is a demand for whatever service you can offer."
