Upon entering the office of RocketSpace, we were welcomed with a colorful lobby, hallways leading to a maze of desks and offices, and sheet metal lounge chairs.
A sense of ingenuity and creativity was in the air as we toured the first floor, and every other floor provided a similar feeling that something truly innovative was occurring. Since 2011, RocketSpace has been helping startups get off the ground by providing for office space and working as an incubator.
RocketSpace attempts and succeeds at providing an innovative collective between startups. They focus on the idea that if your business is surrounded by other innovative people, it provides a more productive and conducive environment. This proximity to other businesses provides a greater ease of networking between companies that otherwise wouldn’t meet.
Being the first stop on our trip it put me into the mindset that it’s not only about the tech, but it’s about who you know and surround yourself with.
