WHAT WE DO
LaunchHouse is a community where businesses and people come together and grow. It is more than just a place to work, it is a place for people to engage and learn from one another while developing their businesses. We are entrepreneurs, freelancers, startups, solopreneurs, designers, consultants, and anyone who doesn’t fit into a neat corporate box. You won’t find us working typical 9–5 jobs here.
HOW WE DO IT
We offer flexible membership options and a blend of private offices and open office space. If you’re looking for an inspiring and supportive community, as well as, a comfortable environment, you’re sure to find a home at LaunchHouse.
WHY WE DO IT
You’ll find our members not just working to build their dream, but helping each other to build theirs. Best put by an African Proverb, “if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
Go Far with Us.
