About LaunchLeap

LaunchLeap is an online platform that lets brands ask their customers questions, get to know them, make better decisions and grow their business.

Our platform represents a new generation of surveys that engages participants in a fun, friendly exchange and supplies brands with the actionable data needed to make their products and services better.

It all started…

In 2014, with a successful crowdfunding campaign. The LaunchLeap team realized that the monetary gains of crowdfunding weren’t its only benefit. Customers’ feedback, insight and ideas also proved to be invaluable. Sharing ideas with their customer base was great, and empowered the team to make the product better, and also increased sales! This pushed Thomas Sychterz, LaunchLeap’s founder, to go on and build a platform dedicated to helping brands get feedback and ideas from their customers and fans.
