Is there a way to find from which directory a process was launched?

It depends on what you mean, really. If you mean "what was the current working
directory when the process was launched", then the answer is no, you can't

You can find the current working directory of the process, by doing

ls -l /proc/<pid>/cwd

where <pid> is the process id of the process.

Unless the program changes its directory itself, that will be the directory
from which it was launched
