Your Dream

You are a focused, driven entrepreneur with a new product or service you know people will need. You eat, sleep and breathe this business idea and there’s no way you’re dropping the ball now.

If you’re invested, eager and ready to dig in, we’ve created American Dream Catapult to give you the tools and perspective you need to succeed.

Our Dream

American Dream Catapult is a coalition of marketers, investors, coaches, IP specialists, and other entrepreneurs who have followed our American dreams and want to give you that same leg up when it comes to your launch and beyond.

We know a successful launch of your new product or service is about setting you up for the future, not merely the launch. This isn’t a sprint, this is a marathon and one we want you ready for every step of the way.
