About Us

Fueled by a team of passionate and driven entrepreneurs, LaunchPad Lab is a Chicago-based Development Studio that focuses on growing businesses. We are intentionally small, skilled, and focused on success. We build our own businesses while helping others build theirs. No matter the size of the client, we approach all projects the same: design with reason, find business solutions and impress users with the best experience possible.

We work in a collaborative environment where everyone is expected to be creative and contribute to all facets of building businesses. Each day at LaunchPad Lab is an opportunity to work with a team focused on making a difference. We intentionally choose tough projects that have the potential to change the world. Those projects include helping cancer researchers discover cures faster (Really!) as well as revolutionizing business payments.

The perfect match

You are a designer who focuses on the details and strives to build a more meaningful experience for your users. You thrive on collaboration, understand the process of iteration, and prefer to “own” a project from inception to deployment. You are a designer who has experience designing user interfaces, marketing sites, and performing brand development. Most of all, you want to be part of a fun, challenging, and collaborative environment where egos are left at the door.

What Success looks like:

Tom Cullen


Tom, a very proud and active alumni of St. Bonaventure University, began LaunchPad Lab after an eleven year stint running trading firms and building software in the high speed world of finance. He constantly thinks about how to use software to make enormous impact, and he loves working with clients to maximize their potential. Tom preaches design thinking, business innovation strategy, and works a side gig as a superhero (the latter being a great source of joy to his 1 and 3 year old daughters).
