WHERE SELF-DISCOVERY MEETS SOCIAL ENTERPRISE

Launchpad

Whether you have the next world changing idea or are just dipping your toe into the world of social enterprise, Launchpad will take you on a journey of self-discovery, diving deeply into who you are, what you care about, and how your ideas can make a positive impact on a local or global scale.

Discover your passions and how one of the fastest growing industries, social enterprise, can connect your passions and desires to help others and transform your ideas into action.
