What kind of rockets does Rocketmakers make?

"Do you make rockets?"

We get asked that sometimes, and we would like to clarify that we don’t make actual rockets! We like to think that the game-changing startups we launch and scaleups that we stabilise and accelerate are a lot like rockets in their ambitions to shoot for the stars and their speed of travel. We use deep software development expertise to design and build scalable solutions that will help your business to achieve a positive impact for people or the planet.

With that said, we thought it would be useful to put together an article on the origins of our name. So, why Rocketmakers?

If you couldn’t already tell from our brand and ambition, Rocketmaker’s founders Richard and Keith were hugely inspired by NASA's values when setting up the company. In fact the origin of the visual identity was to blend the professionalism, collaboration, and ambition of the NASA space programme with a tongue in cheek retro sci-fi style from the 1950s.
