A coworking space is more than a building — it's a community.
Over the years, RocketSpace has attracted an international group of industry-leading tech startups and venture capitalists. Members span across multiple tech verticals. Since 2011, RocketSpace has supported 18 startups in achieving billion dollar valuations. In fact, Uber, Spotify, and Zappos achieved early-stage growth at RocketSpace. Above all, RocketSpace is committed to building a global tech ecosystem that provides the world's brightest tech entrepreneurs with the resources, connections, and guidance needed to scale quickly.
Across all tech hub locations, members experience the same level of commitment and support. RocketSpace provides direction in four crucial areas:
- Achieving product-market fit
- Forging partnerships
- Acquiring customers
- Meeting top investors
RocketSpace members can achieve forward momentum in these areas through fireside chats, panel discussions, and open office hours with industry-leading subject-matter experts. Let's look at some of the members of our community you might encounter during a regular workday.
Who Works at RocketSpace's Tech Campus?
1. Founders + Entrepreneurs
The world's leading tech startup founders and entrepreneurs work at RocketSpace. Why? We exclusively admit Seed to Series C funded tech startups with a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) in place. As such, we feel that these tech startup founders and entrepreneurs are well-equipped to cause significant disruption in their verticals. Since our community includes both early and late-stage startups, founders could be focused on securing a next round of funding, enhancing product features, or meeting corporate partners.
"[RocketSpace] is an amazing place to work and meet like-minded people who want to change the world in some way or another," says Dane Matheson, head of growth strategy at Appster.
2. Startup Teams
A startup founder is nothing without his or her team. As such, you'll likely encounter growth-oriented developers, engineers, designers, and marketers at RocketSpace. Many of these team members have gone through revered accelerators; meanwhile, others hail from industry-leading tech companies like Google. With plenty of tech-oriented events to choose from, there's no shortage of opportunities to develop new connections, forge valuable partnerships, and learn. In fact, our members routinely rely on one another for referrals during hiring, finding new places to live, and more.
3. Venture Capitalists + Investors
Another cool thing about working at RocketSpace? The investors come to you. In fact, the world's top venture capitalists often look to RocketSpace for their next investment opportunity. Since our inception, we've built valuable partnerships with angel investors including Band of Angels, Sand Hill Angels, and Bay Angels. Members routinely look to these leaders for information, insight, and funding. In fact, an average of 1.5 RocketSpace startups raise a round of funding per week.
4. Corporate Partners
The last type of person you are most likely to run into on campus is a corporate innovation professional. Our Corporate Innovation Services team works with Fortune 1000 brands who are eager to work with startups to fuel their own innovation initiatives.
Why do the world’s top global brands trust RocketSpace? Our track record of working with great startups and global brands. Corporates are often bombarded and overwhelmed by startups knocking on their door to work with them. It creates a lot of noise. We help them refine and focus their innovation strategy and identify startups that would be a great match. Our methodology ensures that exploring a relationship between the startup and the corporation is never a waste of time or money for either side. For example, in our pilot programs, 97 percent of startups run a successful pilot with a corporate client which helps the startup validate their technologies.
Join the RocketSpace Tech Ecosystem
As you can see, RocketSpace isn't your ordinary coworking space; it's a tech ecosystem filled with innovative entrepreneurs, team members, investors, and corporate partners. Though we may be a diverse community of individuals, we all share two primary goals:
- Disrupting the status quo with our products + services.
- Supporting one another with encouragement, resources, and advice.
Our network of coworking campuses has helped fuel growth for some of the world's most successful tech companies including Spotify, Uber, and Zappos. If it worked for them, it might work for you too.
