TERRE HAUTE Ind. (WTHI)- Starting your own business can be tough.

That's why Launch Terre Haute created the Startup Ladies.

Their goal is to bring together and empower entrepreneurs.

The group met Wednesday to discuss ways to move through the process of starting your own business, and the daily challenges you may face.

Organizers said it's important to be there for those that need that extra push.

"They think they're going through it alone, so what we really try to do is build that community to surround them with the support network they need to live them up through these times where they feel like there's just no hope for their idea," said Shelley Kilngerman

The group meets once a month.

Their next meeting will be in April.

If you're interested in joining the group, you can contact Launch Terre Haute directly.
