Who we are

Welcome to Launchpad Consulting. We are a development  consulting firm, driven by a passion to contribute to  improving lives  through the growth of private enterprise in developing countries.  

A focus on private sector oriented solutions is widely considered essential  for a country’s sustainable growth and development.  This typically involves work at the country, sector and firm levels to  deliver a pro-growth policy framework,  accountable and inclusive governance, and improved firm-level productivity, innovation,  and competitiveness. Launchpad Consulting operates in this space,  providing tailored support and solutions to firms and organizations that drive social stability and  economic growth.   Although proudly Belizean/Caribbean in heritage and culture, Launchpad’s reach and experiences are extensive, and as diverse as the societies struggling with private sector development issues today.  

Started in June of 2000, the company is directed by Mrs. Celene Cleland-Gomez (Master of Laws in International Economic Law, Master of Arts in Organizational Management) and Mr. David Gomez (Master of Laws in International Trade Law, Master of Arts in International Relations/Political Economy, Graduate Diploma in International Development and PhD Candidate). Together, both principals hold over forty (40) years of professional experience with specialist expertise in private sector development, including expanding trade and building robust institutions.
