This “startup-cell” approaches an idea with the same speed and urgency that a startup would. Expect the folks at Rokk3r Labs to stick with you beyond the ups and downs of growth. Their model is to be there when you’ve successfully scaled, and when you’re ready to reach new heights. Operating holistically, they are about the whole life cycle of a business.
