LaunchU Orientation - Jackson County

Tuesday, February 19 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm • Organized By LaunchU
4747 Troost Ave, Room 210, Kansas City, MO 64110

About

LaunchU is an 8-week award-winning microenterprise development program that combines a nationally-recognized curriculum, coaching, and mentoring to help you determine whether your business idea is a feasible opportunity. Topics covered include concept development, market research, competition profiling, pricing, and financial projections. By the end of the course, you will have a completed feasibility plan to determine next steps for launching your business idea and to help secure any needed financing.

This program is designed specifically for microentrepreneurs, business owners who will be starting up on a shoestring budget and employing five or fewer employees at the start of their business, and is open to both men and women, targeted toward those at or below the median income level, and offered at a very discounted price.

The program is used in over 100 locations across the U.S. to help entrepreneurs start and grow their business, even when they have little or no business background. Attendance at a free orientation session is required to apply for this program.

In 2019 LaunchU will be available at two locations: one in Jackson County, MO and one in Wyandotte County, KS.

Orientations will be hosted on Tuesday, February 19 and Tuesday. March 12 from 6:00-7:00pm.

Class Schedule:

  • Tuesdays from 6:00-9:00pm: February 25, March 4, 11, 18 & 25, and April 1, 8 & 15.
