About Rocketship.vc

We love data. We even wrote the book on loving data. And we run our business, just the way you do yours — with data. We have data on over ten million companies all over the world. We use smart algorithms to identify and invest in global winners.

After investing, we continue to track your data, compare it with your competition and the market and feed our insights back to you. Many of our companies are outside silicon valley, we act as their bridge to the valley. You can also benefit from experience of our partners — from sharing an office at Stanford with Sergey Brin, working for Jeff Bezos, to investing in Mark Zuckerberg in 2005. Seriously though, we have created and scaled startups worth $1B at exit, and were instrumental in creating Amazon.com's marketplace, mechanical turk, and @walmartlabs.
