Propelling Local Entrepreneurship

By Connecting Community

By Entrepreneurs, For Entrepreneurs

Launch SA started as an idea created by a group of San Antonio leaders who knew San Antonians needed a place that centralized, celebrated and equipped entrepreneurs to succeed across industries irrespective of background. Created for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs, our support is responsive, adaptable, and personal.

Tools should be usable by the people who need then, so we’ve focused on building intuitive programs, partner relationships, mentor connections, and personalized pathways that fully engage and support our community.

Launch SA has support available to enable entrepreneurs and small business owners to develop the network that will propel their forward momentum. Based on identified gaps in our community, our intuitive programming is built for entrepreneurs to accelerate their progress.

Real People, Real Impact

At Launch SA, we create programs that affect real growth, change, and community development. We focus on growing people as business owners; not only by providing resources and tools, but through community building, perspective sharing, and mentorship connecting.

Through our programs, events, and mentors, we connect entrepreneurs like Joe Saenz (left) to community support. By way of Brooklyn, New York, Joe Saenz moved back to San Antonio after finding what he thought was his dream job as the GM of Meat Hook. Returning to his home city without a strong network, Joe felt alone in his journey working to build a business curing meat in San Antonio. Launch SA connected him with a community of like-minded, business owners, through programs like Break Fast & Launch, and provided him direction at every step along the way till his realization of opening Swinehouse Bodega in 2019.
