FAQs (and how to contact us)

?

With all the free resources out there, why pay for The Launch Kit?

Good point. In fact, with our podcast, blog, and video content, Social Change Nation is one of the largest hubs featuring free content for startup social entrepreneurs. This will always be part of our mission as the hub for those working to make a dollar AND a difference.

But we always knew there was a group at Social Change Nation that wanted more. That's why we took it to the next level by offering The Impact Business Launch Kit. There is simply nowhere else that you'll find such a high caliber group of startup social entrepreneurs working together to spark change.

By grabbing this Launch Kit, you'll be dramatically shortening your journey from where you are to where you want to be.  You'll grow with a small group of fellow entrepreneurs who are equally as devoted to profit AND purpose. You'll get access to world class coaching. And you'll take the very important step of investing in yourself and your business.

And, we've noticed something else... the people that invest the time, resources, and energy into a focused program are the ones who succeed. So, whether you choose to get our launch kit or another program you will inevitably need to choose to sacrifice in order to win.

?

What if I don't yet have an idea for the social impact business I want to start?

That's okay!  The Launch Kit will help you with that too. As long as you know you want to start a venture that makes a dollar AND a difference we'll be able to walk you through the idea crafting stage!

?

How long before I'll start seeing results from the Launch Kit?

As long as you're watching the videos, doing your homework, interacting on the Facebook group and taking action on what we teach, you will see significant movement on your social impact business idea.

?

Where are the other Facebook group members from and what kinds of businesses are they starting?

We have students from all over the world working in industries ranging from socially conscious fashion to tech for good.  No matter the industry though, you'll find that all social entrepreneurs have a great deal in common.

?

Why don't you offer a free trial?

Because we want to make sure that you truly believe that The Launch Kit will offer you far more value than what we're charging.  Our heart is to get the best students into the program who are truly ready to make a massive impact and to invest in their success.

If you don't feel sure on that, we'd be happy to answer any questions and walk you through that decision BEFORE you sign up.

Also, we offer a promise (via our guarantee) that we'll refund you every penny if you don't feel you get significant return, so you can rest easy there.

No problem at all!  Just fire off an email to ashley@socialchangenation.com and she'll be happy to help out :)
