A legacy of leading the way
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.
