Launch House is a community for founders. Hack House is a community for engineers. If Launch House is the school of business, Hack House is the school of engineering.
Together they are the beginnings of a constellation of communities focused on bringing together the brighest minds building the future.
Every day is usually the same during the day - working.
In the evenings, things vary. Here’s an example week:
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core principles of our community. We know that diverse backgrounds and opinions help our community become stronger and allow the best outcomes to be achieved.
We have a council of members from various backgrounds who meet regularly with our founding team to advise and brainstorm new initiatives.
Launch House is what you make of it. Most of the day is free time, and we have 1-2 hours of optional programming Monday through Thursday.
Members often find that most of the magic comes from the serendipitous nature of spending time around the rest of your curated cohort-mates.
Launch House is open to anyone. Many of our members come from blue-chip institutions, but many others do not.
Our most sucessful applicants and community members exhibit the following characteristics:
Community membership is $3,000 per year.
Launch House membership includes a wide variety of benefits to help you accelerate growth — for yourself and your company:
Once you become a member, you'll be added to a Discord channel with everyone else who will be in your cohort.
You'll also get a chance to meet them during our kickoff event. This will happen one week before the start of your cohort.
We accept applications to all programs on a rolling basis. In order to ensure availability, it’s highly recommended to apply by the early application deadline.
However, we accept applications until 1 week before the start date.
We stricly follow CDC recommendations and are constantly on the lookout for updates.
We have an industry-leading policy, including a quick-response action plan to prevent outbreaks, as well as multiple medical professionals working as consultants for our team.
If you have more questions please reach out to our team.
Our (small) team reviews applications on a rolling basis. Most applications are reviewed within a few days, but we do not guarantee a particular turn around time.
Joining a residency program also includes 1 year of membership to our community.
During that year, you'll have access to fundraising and hiring assistance from our well-networked team, our exclusive content library, members-only events and retreats, NFT drops, software perks, gated parts of our Discord community and metaverse location, and our digital community platform.
If you choose not to renew membership, you'll lose access to these benefits.
Many cofounding teams have joined Launch House together.
However, Launch House membership is on an individual basis. If your cofounder is also interested in joining, have them submit an application and flag it to our Admissions team. We'll quickly set up a time to chat with them.
Yes. We have four types of grants:
Grants are issued on a case by case basis and are applied to your program fee. If you'd like to apply for a grant, let us know!
Most founders also choose to pay for Launch House through their company as a business expense.
Sadly for us, we're unable to accommodate most pets.
Some registered service animals are ok to bring with you — talk to our team for more information.
Even if now isn't the right time to join but you'd still like to be involved with the community, drop your email at the bottom of our homepage.
We'll keep you up to date with what's going on within the community — including a heads up about events we host.
