WHAT IS THE LAUNCHPAD?

The Launchpad is a regional competition providing an incentive package worth up to $40,000 for one selected business that will open in Downtown by early 2021, creating a launchpad for the area’s next creative and entrepreneurial idea.

Small business owners have been pitching their concepts as part of the program. Three finalists are still in the running, including Natural Earth and Body (natural skincare/herbal teas), Main Street Market (grocery/deli), and Scout Burger (restaurant/retail)! Congratulations to them and good luck as they next will present their business, “Shark-tank” style to the selection panel. The winner will be announced on June 25th.

The winner will fill one of Downtown’s vacant storefronts–an important boost to the business district as economic recovery continues–and will receive support to help them through their first year in business.

Launchpad was made possible, in part, through community sponsorship, along with many corporate and individual sponsorships and in-kind service contributions.

Dates are subject to change.

THANK YOU TO OUR MONETARY SPONSORS!
