MEET THE LAUNCHLKN
Our Founders Circle is an integral group of leaders who provided the spark to ignite our organization, each making individual commitments of $10,000 in 2018. We are deeply grateful for both their financial contributions and their strategic guidance as we look to make a unique difference to our local founders, their teams, and our community. These individuals are true ambassadors for the startup ecosystem in the Lake Norman area.
