LaunchCo has a mission of developing, mentoring and investing in early stage healthcare companies. It does this through the Health InnovatAR program along with personal mentoring of founders and collaboration with members of the Health InnovatAR provider coalition.
LaunchCo’s founder, Jeff Stinson, was one of the earliest leaders in the Arkansas, tech-based entrepreneurial ecosystem. He led the development and management of Arkansas’s first organized angel group, Fund for Arkansas’ Future, and founded the Delta I-Fund, an early-stage validation fund that invests in and trains founders with ideas for innovative startups. He also currently serves as a principal in Innovate Arkansas. Over the past 15 years, he has advised, counseled, mentored and invested in hundreds of startup founders.
