Business Training ● Mentors ● Networking ● Funding
Launch Holly Springs is a community service project that the Holly Spring Rotary Club took on to assist local entrepreneurs. The program strives to develop successful entrepreneurs who have limited access to financial and business resources.
The program is modeled after LaunchDETROIT, a successful community building program created in 2013 by Rotary leaders in Detroit.
We are a community service and global humanitarian organization with clubs located in over 200 countries. Since 1905 Rotarians have attracted business and community leaders. We develop projects in our community and around the world and exchange ideas on how we can make a greater impact.
The Holly Springs Rotary Club was founded in 2004 and has grown with the town as Holly Springs has emerged to be one of the more desirable places to live in NC. The Club raises tens of thousands of dollars every year most of which is returned directly back into the community. Anyone looking for an opportunity to give back and serve the local community is invited to join us.
A Holly Springs Initiative
Our network of local partners in Holly Springs provides a broad network of support and resources for our entrepreneurs.
