Who is LaunchKNIGHTDALE?

Created by the Knightdale Chamber of Commerce, Town of Knightdale, Wake Technical Community College and the Rotary Club, LaunchKNIGHTDALE strives to develop successful entrepreneurs who have limited access to financial and business resources.

Our program is modeled after LaunchRALEIGH, a successful community building program created in 2015 by Rotary leaders in Raleigh.

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.

A Knightdale Initiative

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