Success…One Business at a Time
As a small-town community, we love the collaboration and helpfulness we see around us. Our commitment to tomorrow’s economic growth in Lenawee County is taking fruit…one business at a time.

Launch Lenawee is part of that growth! We’ve seen businesses start and blossom; and we’re getting ready to ramp up our FIFTH class, starting in May!

Help Spread the Word
If you or someone you know is interested in starting a business in Lenawee County, then Launch Lenawee is the “launching pad” for information and implementation. Please share this information about our upcoming class. Plan to attend one of the following orientation sessions in the lower level of the Adrian Armory: Tuesday, May 10th from 5-6 pm or Saturday, May 21st from 11 am-noon.
If accepted to the program, plan to attend the next 12-week session that begins on Thursday, May 26, 2022, from 5 – 8 pm in the lower level of the Adrian Armory.
Special thanks to our Launch Lenawee team: Instructor, Jacob Wilson; Advisor, Tim Robinson from Lenawee Now; and Program Directors Mary and Mark Murray; and to those who help support the CUB Fund, which gives small business loans to our graduates.

Launch Lenawee is a program of the Adrian Armory Community Center, Inc, a 501(c)3 Not for Profit Organization.

Congratulations to our Launch Lenawee Graduates
