Company description

RocketHub is a grassroots crowdfunding platform. We provide the credibility and infrastructure necessary to successfully leverage the financial power communities to launch creative projects and endeavors.

Crowdfunding is a pretty new idea and RocketHub is designed to leverage the concept in a unique way. There are many more creative people in the world than there are wealthy patrons of creativity. Most Creatives lack the financial independence to fund their own creative endeavors, and finding a willing producer can be a challenge. How many people do you know who are ready, willing and able to contribute $50,000 to back a creative project? Probably not so many... But how many people do you know who could contribute $10, $50 or $100 toward the same project? Probably a lot more - especially if rewards are offered in exchange for contributions. That is the power of the crowd. All the financial backing Creatives could ever need is already available to them, if they know how to leverage it.

In only 10 months, RocketHub has utilized the power of crowdfunding to build a vibrant artistic community. We have been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, American Songwriter, and The Economist while helping hundreds of artists, musicians, and entrepreneurs raise funds and awareness for their creative projects. Crowdfunding is becoming a mainstream concept.
