They've launched it.
Now, let's help them skyrocket!
And that's where we need you to come in.
Your invaluable expertise, your wealth of experience and best of all, your natural gift of encouragement and inspiration-- these are some of the most important things that can help transform our young entrepreneurs' businesses and mindsets as leaders.
That is why we're calling our mentors ROCKETLAUNCHERS. We need you to light up a fire inside their hearts, ignite their genius and take their entrepreneurial visions to a whole new galaxy of possibilities.
WHY BECOME A ROCKETLAUNCHER
Because it's cool to be one! And simply, because mentoring, also known in this context as enterprise volunteering is an opportunity for you to learn, grow and see different perspectives while empowering others to do the same; changing lives even. Win-win!

"Research shows that during the start-up phase, businesses with a mentor are more likely to succeed. One positive interaction can change someone's life."
Ready to blast off?
Every mentoring relationship is built on mutual trust, respect and communication, and involves both parties meeting regularly to exchange ideas, discuss progress and set goals for further development. Commitment and consistency are key.
Whether you're an individual or a company team, there are mentoring & other engagement opportunities both virtual or in-person for you to explore at Launch It.
Starting is easy.
We know how valuable your time is so we try to make our process from screening and selection to onboarding down to the actual mentoring proper as smooth and easy as possible.
"Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.”

EMPOWERING CHANGE THROUGH CONNECTEDNESS
Some kind words from some cherished previous mentors who dedicated their time & resources to
supporting Launch It's mission.
I’ve been very fortunate with the opportunities afforded to me – whether they be earnt, given or pursued. Mentoring allows me to be able to give that back to others and be able to see them succeed. It’s amazing how much people can grow in such a short space of time when they have the right support.
Matthew De Jesus
Principal, Talis Capital
"I come from a normal background and started in my job at the most junior level – I naturally want to try and help younger people. I’m in a position to do so because I have spent 30 years working in a corporate environment and seeing how and why companies have been successful and why they fail. I am someone my mentee can talk to and I can reinforce that he is doing the right things."
What it means to Launch Iteers
"I have been mentored through different stages of my business journey. Each time has been very valuable to the growth of my business and my personal development.
Mentoring has developed my network, helped me create a clear business strategy and has allowed me to develop practical skills to implement during the day to day of running the business.”
