When Christa Tuttle takes on a task, she goes in 100%. On September 10, 2001 she made a decision to start her own marketing company, and the next day the whole world changed with 9/11. In the face of a changing world, she pushed forward and started her business.
Fifteen years later she has a team of 15 people and leads a fast growing boutique marketing firm focused on high tech companies.
Prior to founding Launch Marketing, Christa worked for Austin venture capital firm TL Ventures, where she managed marketing in-house and lent her expertise to its portfolio companies, helping them develop marketing plans and bring their first products to market. Before that, she led a marketing team at enterprise software company Trilogy, where her team successfully drove more than 50% of the lead generation.
Christa is an active member of the Austin community, where she regularly mentors a tightly knit group of entrepreneurs, and has served on the board for the Technology Entrepreneurs’ eXchange. She has contributed time to organizations like Entrepreneurs Organization, Austin 360 Summit, Forum for Women Entrepreneurs, Austin Symphony BATS, Breakthrough and Big Brothers Big Sisters. Christa is a California native, has lived in Austin for more than 20 years, and has loved riding horses since she was a child. She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration with a minor in Psychology from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
