Individual Applicants

If you would like to be a Launcher, please sign up to be notified when the application period opens.

Mentors and Subject Matter Experts

Our Launchers benefit from mentoring and guidance from entrepreneurs and business professionals of all types who can help them understand specific issues as well as get mentoring of a more general type.  This involvement can be short term, long term, for one hour or many hours.

Prototyping Help and Interns 

As our Launchers develop their ideas, they need assistance developing their prototypes and raising awareness.  If you (or your audience/organization) can help with any of the following, let’s talk!

  • Graphic Design
  • Creating Simple Web Pages
  • Mastering Power Point
  • Taking Video or High-Quality Photography
  • Developing an Online Workshop
  • Producing a Simple Product Prototype, could be 3d printing, sewing, constructing from various materials, filming a video of “how it works”


Ambassadors and Partner Organizations

Does your organization serve an audience of would-be Launchers or would-be mentors or would-be interns?  Can you help us with outreach for Launchers, Mentors or Interns, or all three? Let’s talk.  We can host an information session for your audience or customize a partnership that matches your level of interest and type of desired involvement.

If you’re interested in any of the above opportunities, please email us at ( with Launch1000 in the subject line.
