What you will get

 

The Launchfield Entrepreneurship Academy is a 6-month intensive training programme for your team and your startup. 

 

You will be led through weekly training, biweekly mentoring calls and additional input in our private Facebook community. 

 

The educational content in the academy is divided into two tracks, Business and Mindset. 

 

To become a successful entrepreneur, you have to work on your own development as much as that of your business and unlike any other entrepreneurship coaching programme in the world, we give equal attention to both. 

 

This way, you’ll build a robust and sustainable business, but will also prepare yourself to become the leader you need to be to advocate for your vision worldwide. 

Business track


The business track will be led by Lauren Proctor and will cover a comprehensive and in-depth curriculum addressing every puzzle piece of a functioning business.
