Who We Are
Founded in 2012 by Bernie P. Dixon, Launchpad2X is a founder-to-CEO accelerator training program for women entrepreneurs.
What We Do
We train and develop women founders through education, introduction to resources and mentorship.
Launchpad2X is not a traditional entrepreneur accelerator. We are a 501(C)(3) non-profit corporation and we do not take equity positions in the companies we train.
Our core mission is the development of the CEO. Centered around confidence, we train women by teaching them the high-level skills needed to scale their businesses.
