About LaunchSource

Learn about our Mission, vision and meet our awesome team!

Our Mission

LaunchSource’s mission is the development of a community of business leaders who are dedicated to strengthening the skills and passions of recent graduates, career transitions, and others with unconventional backgrounds who are new to the field of sales, tech sales, and sales as a career.

The current shortage of qualified sales talent is adversely affecting the growth of companies. Frontline employees are essential for a company’s wellbeing, revenue, and future outcomes.

We at LaunchSource believe that sales is the top discipline providing individuals with the flexibility, freedom, and work-life balance to manage the rapidly evolving global economic environments.

Our Commitment to Diversity

We believe that everyone — and we mean everyone — should have access to a brighter tomorrow. At LaunchSource, we fully recognize that it is imperative to foster a culture of diversity and inclusion to further champion equality amongst our team, candidates, and partnering companies.

Our company’s diversity and inclusion efforts are an integral strategy within our business and ultimately continue to be assessed and challenged by our employees, advisors, and community each and every day.

The people who work at LaunchSource share the vision and values of our community.

We're driven by the idea that the best work is born from diligence, craftmanship and fun.
