What is LaunchMe?
LaunchMe is a free initiative which gives people the opportunity to develop, finance and launch their own business. Participants work alongside other community members to create their business ideas with support from experts in the field. It is not a one-size-fits-all approach: the program is tailored to the needs of each participant.
The LaunchMe program includes coaching, mentoring, business planning, building skills and networks as well as a microenterprise loan to help participants get their business up and running.

What some of LaunchMe’s past graduates have to say
“Starting and building a business at times is a very lonely process, having somebody who can help is invaluable…For me the most valuable aspect of the meeting is the opportunity to be able to discuss any business related matter and get non-biased opinion from a professional friendly person. The financial support is crucial in achieving advertising goals I have set.”
“Having someone, who knows about business, to guide and inform me along the way was wonderful and the financial assistance provided here and there to pay for things like business name registration, website fees and consultations with other professionals, such as accountants or lawyers, is extremely helpful. I can’t thank Yvette and LaunchME enough for all of their support and commitment to making my business dreams a reality.”
“The proudest moment I had in the business was to open an ABN in Australia with LaunchME’s help. When Covid-19 hit, LaunchME helped me do a training course, I then did an interview for a job and I got the job. Maybe after 6 months the travel industry will re-open again. I have the ABN, I will obtain a business name and I will start promoting Australia travel more, with the contacts I have the skills I have learned from here.”
