Toolkits and resources

Launch League has created and curated resources that hubs and entrepreneur support organisations can leverage and design to run great programmes that grow their local entrepreneurial ecosystems. Toolkits are designed to be used as a full package, while resource collections are related resources that you can pick and choose from.

Best of all, most of the resources we’ve listed are open licence, so they’re yours to use as you need!

Looking for a resource, but not sure which toolkit or collection to use?


These open licence toolkits have been designed for teams at hubs and skills organisations to train and support entrepreneurs. In each toolkit you’ll find a set of editable resources to download and use within existing programmes or to launch a new offering for entrepreneurs in your community. Each toolkit is designed to be used as a full package, and has been tried and tested by hubs across South Africa and Southern Africa.
