Nate McQueen

CTO & CISO, LIO Insurance

Formerly a Launch CTO,

Nate McQueen left Launch to lead the creation of a new digital insurance carrier—one that provides commercial insurance quotes and policies in minutes, not weeks. Dual-wielding CTO and CISO roles, Nate not only spearheads LIO’s data and tech innovation,  he also ensures top-tier security for LIO’s customers. “I wouldn’t have had this opportunity without the relationships and the knowledge I gained while at Launch,” he said. “Having the freedom to be an entrepreneur at Launch, and innovate in the space of data platforms and cloud technology, gave me the fundamentals to be able to build a commercial insurance carrier from the ground up.”

LIO launched in the summer of 2021 and is on its way to expanding business to all 50 states. Though we miss Nate around the office, we’re excited to see LIO grow and thrive under his leadership. We’re rooting for you, Nate!

Our values

People First

"If it's not for people, then what's it for?" - Heinrich Montana

There is no innovation without people. We believe tech exists to make life easier, better, and more convenient - and since that looks different for everyone, we believe you can't start any project until you know the people who need it.

If you're ready for reentry, let's find you somewhere to land.
Our values


"When you’re surrounded by people who share a passionate commitment around a common purpose, anything is possible." - Howard Schultz

At Launch, we know we're geeks. Unknotting, improving, and predicting data makes us giddy. But it's all in service of our mission: to enable every tech experience to be a more human experience.

If this sounds like you, you're ready for Launch.
Our values

Positive Attitude

"Sooner or later, those who win are those who think they can." - Richard Bach

We don't see business problems. We see challenges to overcome. We see opportunities for progress. 15+ years of experience tells us that every challenge is better tackled by a team - and ours is made up of some of the best technologists in the world.

If this sounds like you, you're ready for Launch.
