As we’ve mentioned before, Rocket was founded in April 1990. The company got off to a quiet start, but by October of that year, the media was starting to take notice. Thanks to the magic of Google, we can see Rocket’s first magazine mention in the October 15, 1990 issue of Computer World, accompanied by Rocket’s first official office address. As CEO Andy Youniss points out, it’s interesting to look at this page 25 years later and notice that of all the companies mentioned on the page, Rocket is the only one that hasn’t gone out of business or been bought by a larger company.
Join us again next week for another installment in our Rocket at 25 series.
