Marco Perez Vice President of Operations
Launch Chattanooga


Marco Perez is Vice President of Operations for LAUNCH CHA, a microbusiness training and coaching organization that focuses on minority-owned and women-owned businesses as well as those born in communities that are underrepresented in entrepreneurship. A native Costa Rican, Marco moved to Austin in 2010 where he became fascinated by the entrepreneurial energy surrounding the city. In 2011 he moved with his family to Chattanooga and took a job as the Director of Finance and Operations for an international development organization.

He came to work at LAUNCH due to his belief that the sustainable economic growth of a city needs to be inclusive of the entire population, especially microbusiness startups. His role, in addition to overseeing the operations and finances at LAUNCH, is to mentor and train business owners in areas of financial management and growth strategies.
