Information
This company has been criticised for its "copycat" strategy of founding startups which replicate the business models of other established, successful companies. Since starting in 2007, Rocket has backed about 75 tech start-ups in more than 50 countries. Many of these start-ups are 'copied' business ideas applied in emerging markets.
