Elevator Pitch:

Rocket Bug is a small, family owned company that designs, manufactures, and sells unique baby and children's clothing and accessories.

Tell us about your business, what inspired you to get into it, what you sell/service you offer, what makes your business stand out and how it impacts you, your community or the environment.

Rocket Bug is a two-person, team that was founded in 2006 by a stay at home mom who wanted to have a creative outlet while taking care of her three young boys. It happily evolved into a full-time business when the boys went off to school. By following trends that inspire unique twists, our sales have grown consistently. Rocket Bug focuses on fun and thoughtful graphics, high quality products, fabulous customer support, and charity involvement (including monetary and clothing donations).

How would you use the FedEx Small Business Grant money to make a significant impact on your business?

Rocket Bug, normally conservative, is at a crossroads where we can make big changes. We have a number of innovative ideas for expanding and adding to our product lines but no room! The grant would provide us with the capital to jump start a much needed move into a larger space (ideally a move from our 2nd floor location to the ground floor, which our FedEx carrier would greatly appreciate!). We hope to increase our headcount, our benefits package, and the positive impact within our community.
