The core of our mission is to support relaunchers from launch pad to landing pad...from providing you with tools and resources as you begin your relaunch, to working with forward-thinking organizations on how to thoughtfully and purposefully create the space within their organizations to engage with talented and enthusiastic relaunchers like yourself.
