LAUNCH® is for female business owners who already operate a viable, well-vetted business with an established revenue stream and customer base. Entrepreneurs participating in the LAUNCH® class are eligible to compete for capital to take their businesses to the next level. At the end of the LAUNCH® stage, Aviatra will award a cash prize to one or more of these businesses.
The LAUNCH® class provides businesses with a three-year financial projection workbook and business plan format validated by the U.S. Small Business Administration. Each entrepreneur is assigned an individual mentor and provided with introductions to vetted service providers.
