Our Mission

We’re changing the way businesses are built.

Launch Point Labs gives entrepreneurs access to tools, tactics, and business services to launch, grow, and scale their startups.

Our mission is to help entrepreneurs and businesses thrive, which means providing investment capital and intensive, high-impact assistance to a diverse range of founders and creators. We provide our partners with the guidance, training, and technical assistance they need to succeed, and we work closely with them to help them grow their businesses into large and sustainable enterprises.

We’re not just an incubator. We’re not just an accelerator. We’re not just a venture fund. We are everything a startup needs – from idea to impact.

Our Values

We respect our people, we have a will to win, and a culture worth sharing.

Our People: We value our people, encourage their development, and reward their performance. We realize that our success is dependent upon the collective energy, intelligence, and contributions of all of our Team Members

A Will to Win: We exhibit a strong will to win – in life and in every aspect of our business. We believe that great just isn’t good enough, and we fight to win everything we set our minds to. This mindset gives us the control to be who we want, live our lives the way we want, and make the positive impact we’ve always wanted to make.

A Culture Worth Sharing: We do not seek to preserve our culture — we seek to improve it. Every person who joins us helps to shape and evolve the culture further. Our version of a great culture is not great gyms, fancy offices, or frequent parties. Our version of a great culture is a space where people come together, motivate each other, and inspire each other to do better – together.
