LaunchIT Corp. is a consulting firm headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa. We have a branch office in Plano, Texas and a development office in Chennai, India (opened in 2014). We partner with clients from the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors in all regions to identify their highest-value opportunities, address their most critical challenges, and transform their enterprises.

Our customized approach combines deep insight into the dynamics of companies and markets with close collaboration at all levels of the client organization. This ensures that our clients achieve sustainable competitive advantage, build more capable organizations, and secure lasting results.



We seek to be agents of change — for our clients, our people, and society overall.

We are committed to:

• Creating competitive advantage through unique solutions

• Building capabilities and workflow processes.

• Creating sustainable impact

• Providing unparalleled opportunities for personal growth

• Succeeding together with passion and trust

• Working towards your partner of choice to transform
  business and society.


LaunchIT's purpose can be expressed through the core statement that lives at the heart of our brand: launch business to the next level. Our purpose rests on five core values and our shared commitment to living those values each and every day:

Client Comes First




Social Impact

Client comes first: Creating value for our clients.

We set our standard for value creation extremely high. We strive hard to enhance client capabilities and deliver both competitive advantage and bottom-line impact. We measure our success by our clients' success. In tradeoffs between LaunchIT's and a client's interest, the client comes first.

A partnership perspective guides LaunchIT's relationships both internally and with clients. We take a long-term view in our relationships. We strive to build bonds founded on respect, caring, honesty, mutual support, and investment.

We want to be agents of change. Each client is unique, and there is seldom only one solution.

Integrity: Acting with the highest ethical standards for our company, our employees, and our clients.

Integrity means distinguishing right from wrong and doing the right thing. We represent our capabilities honestly. We observe appropriate confidentiality of client information. We do not misrepresent our purposes in seeking information. We only make promises we can keep. We take the time to consider our actions and ask whether we can defend them openly today and tomorrow.

We do not compromise our intellectual integrity for special interests. We share our objective findings with clients—even those that may be unpopular—in a manner that is both candid
and respectful.

Teamwork: Fostering collaboration, diversity, and respect for the individual to empower employees to build relationships.

We believe that breakthrough ideas often result from the work of teams seeking to creatively solve real client challenges. As teams consist of many individuals, we respect the capacity and desire for personal growth, we treat people with consideration. We value ideas on their merit, not on the tenure of their source.

At LaunchIT, we strive for a diverse workplace. It is fundamental to our success that we accept, value, and incorporate the contributions of people from a wide variety of backgrounds. Diversity of thought, expertise, experience, and background is crucial to creating an environment in which creative tensions exist and new ideas emerge.

Excellence: Setting the standard for leading-edge solutions, innovation, and continuous improvement.

We set our standard for value creation extremely high. LaunchIT firmly believes in a degree of difference in every project we do for our clients. LaunchIT exhibits excellence by the attitude of its employees towards the customers, continuous update of knowledge in new technologies, and the willingness to try out new ideas.

Social Impact: Making the world a better place both directly
and indirectly.

We seek to have a positive and lasting impact beyond the business domain. We believe we can make the world a better place directly through our work. We seek to pursue progressive policies in every culture where we provide services. We donate a portion of our time and resources to community and global issues and institutions.

LaunchIT, formerly known as the services side of Salem Associates, Inc., changed hands on January 1, 2012. The team and services remain the same. Under new leadership, LaunchIT looks forward to continuing to work with you, and to our new clients we look forward to getting to know you.
