Who is LaunchHollySprings?

Created by the Holly Springs Rotary Club, LaunchHOLLYSPRINGS strives to develop successful entrepreneurs who have limited access to financial and business resources.

Our program is modeled after LaunchDETROIT, a successful community building program created in 2013 by Rotary leaders in Detroit.

Who is Rotary?

We are a community service and global humanitarian organization located in over 200 countries.  Since 1905 Rotarians have attracted business leaders, leaders of non-profits and service focused volunteers. We do projects in our community and around the world and exchange ideas on how we can make an impact.

Who is LaunchHollySprings Rotary?

The Holly Springs Rotary Club, founded in 2004, is a community focused organization based on its Motto of “Service Above Self”. This club supports numerous community functions, including its latest program LaunchHollySprings. The program is based on the LaunchMyCity Model which is geared to supporting minority and resource limited entrepreneurs and startups. LaunchMyCity programs have been initiated in South Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. Many neighboring communities are actively looking to implement their local programs.

A Holly Springs Initiative

Our network of local partners in Holly Springs provides a broad network of support and resources for our entrepreneurs.

Ready to Join the next LaunchHollySprings Class?

We're looking to partner with current small business owners who would benefit from the combination of business and financial resources that LaunchHOLLYSPRINGS provides. Entrepreneurs with great new business ideas will also be considered.

Interested in being a mentor?

Having a successful mentor relationship can play a critical role in the future success of our students, and can be extremely fulfilling for the mentor. Learn more about the role and mentorship opportunity with LaunchHOLLYSPRINGS.
