WHAT IS LAUNCH JOCO?
WHY LAUNCH JOCO?
In many communities in the United States and across the world, minorities and low income entrepreneurs lack the training and resources necessary to be successful. Modeled after the Launch program in other areas of the state, this program is a proven recipe for bringing new entrepreneurship to the underserved in our county. Got Questions about LAUNCH JOCO?

INTERESTED IN BEING A MENTOR?
If you are a business owner, entrepreneur, community leader, or someone who wants to give to those in the early stages of business, then being a Launch JoCo Mentor is for you! Having a successful mentor relationship can play a critical role in the future success of our students, and can be extremely fulfilling for the mentor. The expectation is that you are available to meet with your student at least 4 hours a month from May through December 2022, but, because mentoring needs and styles vary, your investment can be as much as you and the mentee desire.
