Wow, already one year at RocketSpace. It’s amazing how fast time flys when moving at the speed of Startup. As Duncan’s first tenant, it’s been an incredible experience watching the Rocket come to life. While flipping through the photos on my iphone and reflecting back on the year, I’m reminded that the greatest value add of RocketSpace has nothing to do with business, but life as a whole. The environment Duncan has created brings some of the worlds wildest and brightest personalities under one roof, the end result is a collection of memories and unique friendships that I can’t imagine having missed. It’s no different than when you return from exotic travels and say to yourself, “Man, I can’t believe I could have gone through life without experiencing that place”.
As a whole, Rocket Space has provided me with something that is hard to quantify; inspiration. I joined the Rocket at a time when I needed it the most. Getting out of bed each day was a challenge while recovering from a broken neck and back. Many days the only thing that motivated me to to get out of bed was knowing that the energy inside the walls of RocketSpace was there. From this, my startups benefited greatly.
Attached are a few photo’s that survived on my iphone from the first few months of the rocket…the first client, first keg, first startup crawl. Good luck in 2012! – erik
