High Growth Happy Hour - Rocket Fiber

Southeast Michigan Startup is pleased to announce our next High Growth Happy Hour focused on one of Detroit's fast growing companies, and the city's fastest internet provider, Rocket Fiber. 
Rocket Fiber is a Detroit-based internet service provider dedicated to bringing affordable gigabit internet and an industry-leading, personalized client experience to residents and businesses in Detroit. Rocket Fiber’s newly built fiber backbone is designed to transform the way Rocket Fiber clients create, collaborate, and communicate. 
Co-founder and CEO Marc Hudson and co-founder and COO Edi Demaj will share how they raised over $30 million in investment from billionare Dan Gilbert to launch a new broadband company, how they are disrupting industry standards, and how they are actively scaling an innovative tech startup across Detroit.
