Ideas are plentiful, but time is irreplaceable. So many entrepreneurs hesitate to get started because they're concerned they don't have a "good" idea. They perhaps have many and want to know what the "best" one is to start.

Launch Pad is for everyone in Tri-Cities to see the community. This one-night event presents the complete vision for an entrepreneurial ecosystem in Tri-Cities centering on homegrown ideas and grass-roots action.


One Night to Get Connected

It's a free event to find your place in a local effort to think big and get started on big ideas. Launch Pad has a casual atmosphere where you can connect with other people excited to see new things in Tri-Cities. You'll find inspiration and encouragement, along with practical next steps.

You don't know if the world is ready for your idea - but you can start. You'll hear from real, local entrepreneurs and start defining your own journey toward a better tomorrow.

You'll meet others--entrepreneurs, investors, mentors, doers, supporters--who are part of the community.
