A legacy of leading the way

red horizontal rule

With a true love and appreciation for technology, Bottle Rocket’s Founder, Calvin Carter, took a leap of faith over fifteen years ago.

It all began with a phone. Some thought the iPhone was just a sleek new gadget, but Calvin felt it could be more. An always early adopter of technology, he waited in line for the first iPhone in 2007. What quickly became clear to him was how this device would change how we do everything. The day after Steve Jobs announced the iPhone platform was open to third-party developers, Bottle Rocket was born. Driven by this exceptionally innovative technology and its immense possibilities, Calvin designed and built nine apps that first year and drew the attention of National Public Radio (NPR), which shortly thereafter became Bottle Rocket’s first client.

Over the next fifteen years, Bottle Rocket forged deep partnerships with some of the world’s most discriminating brands. It is this expertise and proficiency that has provided us a unique perspective and powerful set of capabilities to support our clients in their acquisition, engagement and retention efforts and create experiences that customers love. Bottle Rocket has a powerful foundation to stand on—comprised of everything from a rich and diverse history, to an amazingly powerful portfolio of skills, to a brilliantly-talented, passionately-focused team of Rocketeers. And we’re just getting started.

Work from Wherever

Bottle Rocket founder announces a “work from wherever” future for the company

In May, 2020, Bottle Rocket became a “Work from Wherever” company. This more relevant, contextual, productive and personalized way to work demontrates our continued commitment to our people and further illustrates our progressive and innovative culture and philosophy.

We're in the business of connections.

No matter what kind of transformation your company is experiencing, whether it is market pressure from shifting customer expectations, disruptive competitors, or the internal pressures to become more efficient through technology, transformation means change. And humans resist change. At every level and with great fervor. No transformation will be successful without first establishing a mindset throughout the enterprise that brings everyone together.

At Bottle Rocket, we pay special attention to connections. And we always seek opportunities to build genuine, deep connections that only authentic, open, transparent communications and actions can bring. This is true with our clients, with our teams, and with our partners. We believe working in this way, and only this way, is the path to the best results and the greatest efficiencies along the way. 

When you consciously and purposefully put relationships at the center of everything you do, it creates a level of collaboration and comradery that everyone reaps the benefits from. And it helps ensure that we are all pulling on the same rope, in the same direction, each and every day, to make everyone’s journey as fulfilling as it can be.
