What is the LaunchPad?
A co-working space and hub for entrepreneurial support for the Bemidji region. The LaunchPad provides entrepreneurs, freelancers, start-ups, and professionals an opportunity to co-work, collaborate, network, and learn in an innovative, yet fun, environment. This one-stop-shop for entrepreneurs provides resources and support to move your business to the next level, with access to mentors, business consultants, financing resources, peer networking groups, and tailored training opportunities.
Wondering if a co-working membership is right for you?
- Do you currently work from home, but often long for face-to-face interactions or less distraction from household chores?
- Are coffee shop meetings just not providing the level of professionalism and/or privacy you desire?
- Do you need office space, but can’t afford the overhead at this stage of your business?
- Do you need help to get your business concept off the ground and a place to hang your hat in the process?
If you answered yes to any of the above, the LaunchPad is the answer for you!
