According to Chris Anderson, Former Editor for Wired Magazine, two NYT best sellers, Long Tail and Free:

"Every single year for the past few decades the opportunities for young entrepreneurs emerge and expand, the tools to become many times more powerful, while the ease-of-use improves."

 

"The trend toward easier to use tools on the web enables any motivated individual to establish a web presence. Once that technology trend puts powerful tools in the hands of regular people, disruption is going to happen regardless of what you do.

There has never been a better time in the history of the world for young aspiring entrepreneurs."

- Chris Anderson.

Testimonials

BizLaunch has helped a lot of students succeed.

We work hard to provide excellent tools for your venture's success.

  • We have received $54 Million in VC capital for our startup Sendoso! I took this course and then graduated. It was several years later that I hit this big success but I can say for sure this was amazingly helpful. I was hugely inspired plus it helped me learn how to develop a wireframe, work with engineers and work with customers. We're at 200 employees now and growing fast! Thank you BizLaunch for a great start!

    Kris Rudeegraap - Founder of sendoso.com

  • We are clurrently earning over $50K per month and still growing! I took the BizLaunch course and loved it! Working through their materials literally launched me on a new path in life - success! Probably the most amazing thing is that these tools are some of the best on the market for professional entrepreneurs! Amazing and awesome, I just left school and continued straight on with these tools.

    Jon Torres - Founder of jontorres.com

  • BizLaunch teaches main street entreps as seriously as high tech entreps. Their materials are excellent and I especially liked ideas I learned like hyperlocal niche. BizLaunch taught me how to do each step to get to selling! I expect to earn close to 25K on my part-time baking business with my specialty "Cake in a Jar!" This has been the most informative course I have ever taken! I learned something new every day.

    Emma Wilson - Inventor of "Cake in a Jar!"

  • I am so glad my professor at Penn State adopted BizLaunch's course - I am currently selling over $30K per year of spine saving special supports for race car drivers. It is a great niche and BizLaunch showed me how to tap into the niche and own it! Afer class I wanted to keep building business, so when I learned BizLaunch was offering ongoing hosting at student prices - I was very excited. I love how everything is set up on your Starter Site and you just start building!
