Green Rocket, a Hove based agency, has been named one of the Startups 100, a UK wide league which lists today’s most exciting enterprises that are predicted to become the big businesses of tomorrow.
Run by the widely acclaimed site www.startups.co.uk the list seeks out the next Googles and Dysons; highlighting the most exciting and innovative businesses in the start-up sector.
Kim Stoddart a serial social entrepreneur and the Managing Director of Green Rocket said: "Green Rocket was set up in the belief that business success doesn’t have to come at the expense of social responsibility and to have the potential for this recognised by the wider business community just goes to show that we are already moving in the right direction."
Matt Thomas, editor of Startups.co.uk said: "The list hopefully includes the next Bebo, maybe even Google, but also entrepreneurs looking to innovate in traditional sectors such as retail and manufacturing.
It’s also great to see social enterprises, green businesses and disabled entrepreneurs making the list completely on merit. The economy might be floundering but the UK start-up scene remains buoyant, innovative and fabulously diverse."
Green Rocket is a growth engine for green businesses. The company was initially set up as an ethical media relations company, however the range of services that it offers has recently been extended to provide more rounded marketing and business support for companies in the sector. Green Rocket is dedicated to helping businesses that are genuinely committed to the environment and, as a social enterprise, 75 per cent of its profits are channelled back into an information campaign designed to empower people and businesses with practical knowledge about environmental practices.
Green Rocket is currently working with the Brighton & Hove Business Forum on the Green Wave event scheduled for 5th & 6th July 2008. It is the largest outdoor promotion of eco-businesses in the South East showcasing opportunities for all sectors of the business community in eight different zones, which will be themed, to provide interactive entertainment and education for some 15,000 visitors.
