As a registered charity, Launch22 aims at providing entrepreneurs from all walks of life the same opportunity to succeed. We have created a “scholarship program”, around three main focuses:
- Targeting local areas: Launch22 incubators will open in the areas that need them the most, where entrepreneurship is most likely to help alleviate unemployment and reliance on benefits,
- Networking: providing for free an adequate environment for entrepreneurs from disadvantaged backgrounds to build-up the connections they need to start up their business,
- Mentoring and supporting: providing, as part of the scholarship program, workshops and mentoring on a regular basis to enhance their confidence and give them technical business knowledge.
