The Amazon Launchpad program's 2020 class, fueled by small business and startup companies, has grown sales more than 75% year-over-year as of the end of August. This growth allows them to focus on the innovation. We continue to be inspired by the success many startups have seen over the past five years in the Launchpad program and the big ideas that these small brands have brought to customers.”
