Launch Lab’s Amplify program takes off with dramatic business results from Sweatergang Companions and Dandelion Foods

KINGSTON, ON, AUGUST 21, 2019 – Celebrating dramatic success with two companies during a pilot phase, Launch Lab is pleased to announce the Amplify program, a business acceleration initiative that provides hands-on mentorship and an actionable growth plan.

“We have offered Entrepreneur-In-Residence (EIR) services for several years to startups throughout Eastern Ontario,” said Scott Runté, Launch Lab’s CEO and one of its EIRs. “Now being rolled out across Eastern Ontario, Amplify is a more intensive six-month program for revenue-generating companies with significant growth opportunities and a team to execute actionable items in a timely manner.”

“After a statement of work is agreed upon, Amplify companies commit to two-hour meetings on a monthly basis where business fundamentals such as finance, operations, marketing, sales and human resources milestones are discussed and measured,” stated Runté. “At the end of the Amplify program, we ensure they have the necessary business fundamentals in place to grow and prosper.”
