What is LAUNCHPAD - Accelerating Venture Growth

Launchpad - Accelerating Venture Growth is about the business support, leadership development and global connectivity you as entrepreneurs need to grow to scale your enterprise.

Why is LAUNCHPAD Different

Launchpad is about what you as an entrepreneur need on your way to scale your venture accross borders. Impact Hub Belgrade implements Launchpad in partnership with Spring start-up school from Vancouver, Canada focusing on the vacuum between product-validation and investment-readiness. Blending customized individual support with master-classes and peer-learning; matching you with local and international mentors and experts; forging prospect cross-border partnerships, the Launchpad builds your business practices, opportunities and sophisticated networks of resources to support you in achieving the scale you designed.

Launchpad is for entrepreneurs from different industries because whether they are people or tech-centric, they still need to understand their customers, markets and find a path to sustainable and scalable revenues.

CUSTOMIZED SUPPORT FOR BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

In our experience we find that it is challenging to turn models into practice, especially in our emerging entrepreneurial ecosystem where entrepreneurs are pioneers. So, we draw from our own practices and those of local and international scaling entrepreneurs and we "hack" these examples to support you in adapting them to your situation. To do so, we work with you individually and we match you with peers, mentors, potential partners locally and internationally.

What we believe?

For-profit enterprises generate the most sustainable positive change by growing impact and scaling business
We believe that when entrepreneurs are the strongest engine to solve local and global challenges when they:
  • are empowered through a boundless community of practice
  • refine their skills, competence and leadership
  • increase their access to networks of resources

We believe that cross-pollination, openness, transparency, collaboration and a philosophy of sharing and possibility lead to successful ventures bringing forth meaningful and ethical solutions
