Focused on Emerging Technology, LaunchTech Builds Lasting Reputation and Noticeable Growth

LaunchTech is proud to announce its rise to a Top 15 PR Firm serving Baltimore as named by Expertise, an independent research firm that grades businesses on 25 variables across different criteria. Expertise looked at 168 PR firms in the Baltimore area and LaunchTech, who excels in reputation building, credibility, experience and professionalism, rose to the top. Since its formation in 2015, LaunchTech has grown 300% while serving an impressive list of clients.

“This distinction could not have been realized without our first-class team members and clients,” said Kate Davis Shapiro, VP at LaunchTech. “Together, we collaborate to create impressive outcomes that we are proud to promote and stand behind.”

The past few years have been very exciting for the LaunchTech team as they worked around the clock to assure the unique goals of every client were exceeded while building a team that is second to none. “I am very excited about what we have accomplished in such a short time,” said Managing Director, Wayne Schepens. “Because our focus has remained solely on our clients we have been able to grow organically as word spread through the emerging tech community of our customer dedication, technical acumen and thriving media and analyst relations.”

LaunchTech’s clients are high tech product companies based in tech hotbeds across the continent, from Baltimore and Columbia, Maryland; Washington, DC and Northern Virginia; Boston, Massachusetts; San Antonito and Austin, Texas; Silicon Valley, California; and Vancouver, Canada.

LaunchTech had the pleasure of working with all-star media in the first half of 2018 as the team brought two new companies and three product lines to market and helped their clients respond to topical industry news. LaunchTech supported 10 clients at RSA and secured over 70 media and analyst briefings for clients throughout the eventful week. Additionally, two clients facilitated Peer2Peer sessions and one was named a finalist in the annual Innovation Sandbox competition.

LaunchTech clients are motivated contributors to many different publications including Risk Management Magazine, InfoSecurity Magazine and SecurityWeek. Many clients were named finalists or winners in the Cyber Defense Magazine awards, InfoSecurity Products Guide Awards, SC Magazine awards and Insurance Times awards.

Looking ahead, LaunchTech is excited to begin sharing monthly Launch Tips for any company seeking to amplify their message in the marketplace. The team will be supporting 10 clients on the ground in Las Vegas for Black Hat and is eagerly awaiting the announcement of SINET 16 finalists on August 14. Three of LaunchTech’s clients have submitted applications and will be vying for a spot in the 16 most innovative and compelling companies in 2018.

“We believe that in order for companies to thrive, they must promote the external value they create for others,” said Schepens. “This time consuming and highly strategic task is done most efficiently by a group of experienced professionals that understand technology and how to communicate effectively with the audiences they target. The industry is quickly learning that LaunchTech fits that bill.”
