WHAT IS INFLIGHT?

HOW WILL INFLIGHT HELP YOU?

InFlight supports entrepreneurs in the critical stage following “I have a vetted idea” through “I have six figures in revenue” by providing monthly programming and ongoing support. Together, these resources will help early-stage startups build their business infrastructure and overcome unique obstacles they encounter during the entrepreneurial journey. After going through InFlight, startups will start connecting with customers and begin delivering their product to the market with a great foundation for future growth.


PROGRAM STRUCTURE

With InFlight, startups receive two main pillars of support: monthly programming and ongoing support.

Monthly Programming:

Each month, program participants go through weekly programming designed to meet the unique needs of Launch Level founders and help propel their businesses forward. Each month will cover a relevant, early-stage startup topic and curriculum will build throughout the year to provide a comprehensive experience for participants. Monthly programming includes:
