About

ABOUT LAUNCH

LAUNCH builds impact-focused networks to accelerate industry-changing businesses.

We are:

A convener

We bring together a diverse group of global stakeholders from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to identify and define systemic challenges.

A curator

We foster connections that innovators and stakeholders need to succeed in the market, and have the promise to solve global challenges.

A connector

We access likely and unlikely places to source social entrepreneurs that have the promise to change global systems through scalable innovations.

A content expert

We have our finger on the pulse of what’s happening and insights into what’s coming in the circular economy and the future of food.

An accelerator

We guide mid-to-late stage innovators through the maze of getting to market, scaling and maximizing impact.

A systems designer

Shaping future global systems is both an art and a science. We are committed to the practice of testing, refining, tweaking, and a healthy dose of risk taking, humility, and playing well with others.
