Our History

Founded by Chicago-based entrepreneur, David Carmell, STARTUP ROCKiT was created to "level the playing field" and be the first-of-its-kind digital solution offering the tools for businesses, entrepreneurs, and investors to interact and transact in unprecedented ways. While app developers, investors and entrepreneurs have changed the dating game, no one has managed to tackle a way to match and connect like-minded individuals and businesses in a one-stop-shop for launching and scaling businesses and ventures until now. What started as an idea to connect the startup ecosystem has grown to encompass all areas of networking, collaboration, and productivity, removing the barriers between you and where you want to go.
