Rocket Fiber Picks Up Momentum

September 25, 2015
Rocket Fiber – one of Detroit’s most promising startups – continues to make headlines for hardwiring the city with 100 times-faster Internet. But behind the scenes, another high-speed connection was in the works. Armed with Dan Gilbert’s Midas touch, Rocket Fiber had their pick of digital agencies to help launch their groundbreaking effort; yet, they chose to keep the dollars and opportunity at home, selecting Momentum for their digital debut. “We were ecstatic.” Mometum CEO and founder Jimi Plouffe stated. “They chose to keep their business local and support another startup. We appreciate that, and we know their customers will, too.” Like Plouffe, Rocket Fiber’s CEO Marc Hudson is a young software engineer. He worked for Quicken Loans and took a chance on himself by submitting his idea for ultra-fast, fiber-optic Internet in Detroit through the company’s online suggestion box. Now his idea is quickly becoming a reality, one fiber-optic cable at a time. Hudson was recently featured as one of Crain’s Detroit Business’ “Twenty in Their 20s” and will soon be able to stake claim to changing the way Detroiters live, work and play. “Both companies share a deep commitment to technological innovation and community growth,” Plouffe said. “But developing Rocket Fiber’s website was especially exciting, because the company is going to transform Detroit – which is why we are so honored to deliver a platform that conveys that message.” Check out the new Rocket Fiber website, designed, illustrated and developed by Momentum: Homepage   Interactive Map
