1. IDEA

Launch Lab Online is the next step for active duty military and veterans who want to start their own businesses and jumpstart the next chapter in their life.

Every entrepreneurial journey starts with an idea — Launch Lab Online gives you the tools you need to make your idea a reality.

 

This all-online educational platform is a gamified, interactive way to get an entrepreneurship education — from anywhere in the world, on your time, at your own pace.

Launch Lab Online is a 4 mission course featuring:

1.

Sometimes having a successful business is the worst thing that can happen to you. Many people have built businesses that trap them in a life they didn’t want. Figure out the life you want and build a business to suit it so that you stick with your business for the long run.

2.

Your business exists to serve a particular real-life customer. How will you build something they want unless you know who they are and have a relationship with them. Get out of the building.

3.

More customer interviews. But this time, you can talk about your product. The goal is not simply a pat on the back but honest feedback of whether your customer will PAY you for your product or service.

4.

 If the money side of your business doesn’t make sense, your business will fail, regardless of how much people love your product.
