Our mentors are the lifeblood of LaunchLKN

They include some of the most experienced, prominent leaders and founders across our area. We’ve carefully selected strategists, educators, executives, and founders with a vast array of skills and the willingness to share their expertise with our member network. Our mentors are active with our members, meeting up for coffee, attending events, or hosting office hours.
