Launch House is a home for entrepreneurs to find work-space, guidance, and resources.

Launch House provides a space for ambitious entrepreneurs to grow their new company from idea to reality. Providing affordable office space, mentorship from our team of business experts and access to funding makes Launch House the perfect place for an entrepreneur with an idea on how to change the world.

This is located in the historic Roanoke Machine Sheds, home to over 12 companies. Within this community, entrepreneurs have access to those resources that they need to help their idea become profitable. Launch House is a place where ideas can be shared and prepared for their next stage – whether it’s more funding or growth into additional markets.

It was important to him that their community was open and transparent; he had a “no secrets” policy.
