We believe anyone willing to put in the hard work to become an entrepreneur should have the opportunity to pursue that dream. Our Launch Dayton network includes 20+ organizations that offer online and in-person classes, bootcamps, workshops, events, one-on-one business counseling, funding opportunities and more. And many of these resources are free! Check them all out in our interactive resource guide.
