Happy Rocket Farm!
December marks the 3rd anniversary of everybody’s favorite bootstrapped company – that’s right, Rocket Farm. We celebrated in style at the Blarney Stone in Dorchester, with an official Rocket Farm cake (below).
Three years is a milestone, for lots of different reasons. We’ve survived. Not just survived three years in a down economy, but thrived, designing and building apps for other companies. Confidentiality restricts what we can talk about, but some quick highlights:
- we’ve built apps for 3 of the companies listed on the US Fortune 500
- we’ve built apps for 4 of the companies listed on the World’s largest 500 corporations
Not to mention the countless startups that we’ve helped with apps and SDKs. Highlights that we’re especially proud of include writing Motally’s iOS SDK before they were acquired by Nokia and doing the SDKs for iOS and Android for AdMeld prior to their acquisition by Google. We like to think we helped make those acquisitions happen :)
But what I’m most proud of is the team we’ve built. We’ve assembled in the Boston area a world class set of mobile enthusiasts and stars, a team that has tackled incredibly hard strategy, design and implementation challenges on iOS and Android and lived to talk about it. A team that delivers every day with fun, enthusiasm and incredible hard work. Thanks team!
Rocket Farm looks forward to a fantastic 2012, to the chance to build on the vision of what we’ve started. ‘Connected everywhere’ opens up a pretty big landscape. We aim to shape that landscape … for everyone.
