RocketSpace (Rocket Space Inc)
I moved over to San Francisco 3 years ago from London to start work on more tech companies. Originally Scottish but I have been working all around the world with former companies. This business has international.
My Goal is to build "Disneyland for Entrepreneurs", the most perfect enjoyable environment to start and grow a successful company. I want to push the boundaries of what we can offer entrepreneurs in a shared office environment.
Brands I love
If the design team from Apple, the marketing team from Virgin America, sat down on some Paul Smith furniture listening to Hed Kandi in the Clift Hotel, San Francisco to design a shared office environment, Rocket Space is what they would come up with.
http://www.Virgin-Atlantic.com – Not the largest airline in the business but great staff and a great “let’s do it” attitude. (The London Heathrow “pimp my lounge” is a classic demonstration of this.http://www.advertolog.com/signup/?from_print_click_on_preview)
http://www.paulsmith.co.uk/ - The stripes of Paul Smith stand out without needing a name put next to it. A little like the Nike tick. subtle and classic.
http://www.apple.com – Clean clear and great design
http://startupers.com/ - I like the consistency in everything they do.
http://www.fogcreek.com/ - They are walking the talk
http://disneyland.disney.go.com/ - they simply exceed expectations, always.
We are focused on early stage fast growth companies with a slant towards tech. In San Francisco we are drawn towards post incubator companies but internationally it will be a broader audience of early stage companies.
Shared office space is very different to executive suites. We are not chasing Accountants, Lawyers etc.
We encourage woman to become entrepreneurs and our logo should not isolate them.
We have a temporary website up at http://www.rocket-space.com
Rocket logos are frequently phallic. This is to be avoided.
Logo’s I like
These are smart - http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/201…-concepts/
This Logo should be clear on a business card, website, Tshirt, Office Sign etc.
To be recognized as the No.1 brand for shared office space, globally.
To be the location of choice for Entrepreneurs looking for an unfair advantage..
A global network of cool, technologically advanced, simply priced office environments focused on providing the ultimate office space for pioneering fast growth companies.
Rocket space is a large shared office environment. While we provide some private offices the majority of our space is an open floor format with private areas formed by internal screens or cubicles. While http://www.Regus.com dominates the $1200+ per month space we are creating the $350 - $700 / month market.
Brand / Positioning / feel – Think “Virgin America”
We provide a cool space at a reasonable price.
Our key differentiators
We have a paranoia against nickel and diming.
Size – We are a long term solution to companies. We have a pricing structure which discounts down to enable companies of up to 30 people to use our facility.
Technology – We love technology and want to push the boundaries of what we provide in our environments to people. We want to be the demonstration center to the latest business technology..
Furniture – We are in partnership with Turnstone / Steelcase. We will excel with the latest modern furniture.
