WHY LAUNCH JOCO?
In many communities in the United States and across the world, minorities and low income entrepreneurs lack the training and resources necessary to be successful. Modeled after the Launch program in other areas of the state, this program is a proven recipe for bringing new entrepreneurship to the underserved in our county.
