Launchpad’s roots are in employment & economic development. The founders combined experience in entrepreneurship, workforce development, economic development, and technology provided us a unique expertise to create a company that could really transform a sector and usher in a new connected, demand-driven, and data-driven workforce & economic development era.
Our ‘Ah-huh’ moment came while working on several workforce development consulting engagements. We experienced first-hand the challenges many workforce, economic, and career development organizations face. In response, we launched an internal cloud-based people-centric software to our clients and by year-end, it was our main product. A simple engaging system we created to align, collaborate, and automate many of our internal structure was the tool that our clients needed. Today, we have clients ranging from the urban streets of Los Angeles, lakes of Michigan, to the rolling hills of Pennsylvania.
