Guest speaker Sasanka Atapattu will share his story creating a sales hiring and training platform without raising investor capital.

LaunchSource has helped hundreds of clients hire from 2000+ sales candidates trained through LaunchSource, while staying only focused on the greater Boston area. Now, Sasanka has his sights set on national expansion!

After this meetup, you will walk away with insight into bootstrapping as a feasible strategy for future explosive growth, and a ton of inspiration to get started today.

When we started thinking about LaunchSource in 2012, we were moving up through our careers, talking about starting a business, and realized that with the sales and business skills that we gained at startups to Fortune 100 companies were just the beginning of our stories. We were meant to find a way to help a new generation of talent that were coming out of schools and universities looking for a place to start their careers.

Today we’re pumped to announce that we’ve worked with 2,000+ early-career professionals to help them start, transition, and advance in a business career by providing the education, skills, coaching, and placement at some of the fastest growing startups. Through this work, we’ve built a growing network of companies where employees who were once LaunchSource candidates are now LaunchSource alumni.

We've loved the ride, and are happy to share our story with you!
