Building software that makes an impact
Rocketmakers is an impact-focused organisation.
The ultimate goal is to have a positive impact on the lives of 50 million people through the software that we build.
Rocketmakers’ 10-year goal is not to grow the company to x, sell the company for y, or even generate revenue or profit. Sure, some of those things might happen along the way and some might be targets in their own right.
This goal has always been a driver for the business and in early 2020 it was established formally as the centre of our organisational strategy.
Our ultimate ambition:

50 million people
