They're Just Like You

They Just Started Sooner

Tri-Cities Launch has been the proving ground for a variety of ideas from apps to fitness gurus and everything in-between. Here are a few of our success stories:


A resume will never be the whole story. Self-awareness, grit, curiosity, empathy—these are the skills that are most important. Don’t let your best qualities fall through the cracks. Tell your story. Change the narrative. Let's humanize hiring, together.

WholeStory went through both Launch University: Ideation and Launch Weekend to accelerate their idea.

I’ve worked at some big companies in some pretty serious roles, but none of that corporate experience really prepared me for the unique challenges of starting my own company. I highly recommend Launch for any aspiring entrepreneur, even if you’re experienced in business.
— John Roach, Co-Founder of WholeStory

Thrive Fitness Adventures

Thrive Fitness Adventures provides unique heart-centered mind, body, nature experiences which will empower you to reconnect with yourself, nature and other inspiring women and men. The adventures are designed to support your exploration of both your internal and external world through guided hikes, yoga sessions and meditations.

Thrive Fitness Adventures attended Launch University: Ideation.

Launch gave me the tools, knowledge, network and inspiration to start taking my first steps to creating Thrive Fitness Adventures. The beauty of the Launch program is that it applies to any business, to any idea you can dream up! I created a business I love that aligns with my dreams and passions, and so can you

Solar Spirits

“Saving the world, one drink at a time.” Solar Spirits distillery utilizes renewable solar energy to reduce environmental impact.

Solar Spirits formed at the very first weekend event.

Tri-Cities just really needs to start building and creating. Launch gives anyone and everyone that opportunity!

Red Level Games

Inspire terror and awe in Dragon, the first open-world action RPG that lets you experience the world through the eyes of a dragon.

Red Level Games' first game, Dragon, took flight in 2014 with our second weekend event.

In those three days, the people, momentum, and opportunities that came out of that event showed me a new path. Being active in these communities lets you build your personal and business brand, in a way that feels “safe”.
