We’ve Learned The Hard Way How To Startup.
So You Don’t Have To.

Truthfully, we created ZipLaunch for ourselves. Because it's what WE wanted 10+ years ago! A fast, affordable and turn-key method to launch, grow and operate a 6-figure startup. 

Hi, I’m Sheri Allain 

(aka ‘Chief Launcher’)

  • LinkedIn

I’m fortunate to have worked on 5 of the world’s top brands but my real passion is helping small businesses succeed. From working with 200+ small business owners to teaching Marketing & Sales for the City of Toronto for 4 years, I've seen entrepreneurs struggle with the same 2 problems: 1) WHAT should I do? 2) WHO can show me HOW to do it?

After working on 5 startups and launching 3 within 13 years - my 1st while a new mom on maternity leave (phew) - I totally understood the fear, overwhelm and indecision of being your own boss. And wanting to grow a successful business quickly! 

That's why I created ZipLaunch: to help you become fast, focused and super productive. The inspiration? My 4th startup, Codezilla, which I bootstrapped into a 6-figure business in less than 3 years while freelancing and raising two young children. Codezilla was forecast to become a million-dollar company by 2023. But life and pandemics happen!

Starting a business is hard. But it doesn't have to be as complicated and confusing as others will have you believe. Focus on the fundamentals, emulate success, get support from those who've been in the trenches, and plan your work/work your plan. Learn more about how we can help your startup or small businesses succeed. We believe that everyone deserves success!
