Business People at a Lobby



Our members are creative, intelligent, curious, and as collaborative as they come.


Some are serial entrepreneurs and others are first-time founders. They value the strong connections in the Lake Norman community as a way to grow as business owners, entrepreneurs, and people. 




LaunchLKN exists to develop stronger, more thoughtful, confident entrepreneurs. We provide entrepreneur-focused educational opportunities through seminars and speaker series that evoke stimulating conversation about technology and innovation. LaunchLKN also provides “Startup Generator Program” for developing   new ventures. Get Ready...Set, Launch!


We might be biased, but we have some of the area’s brightest minds ready to serve entrepreneurs. They are strategic thinkers, corporate leaders and educators. They are founders and entrepreneurs, financial gurus and engineers.


We believe that knowledge becomes powerful when it is shared. LaunchLKN members and mentors have access to regular exclusive networking events, happy hours, professional speakers, distinguished panels, and entrepreneur-focused educational opportunities are some of the ways we gather to influence growth in the ecosystem.


We aspire to build a comprehensive early-stage platform that leverages multiple approaches to investment and entrepreneurial support that is inclusive via support of minority, female and veteran-led start-ups.
