A little background about Skye Chilton:
Skye Chilton studied at University of British Columbia and played baseball.
To get Rocketcases off the ground, they set up a really simple website with one case, which they drop shipped from a reseller. Next, they bought Adwords for relevant keywords to see if people would buy it. Sales came in which proved their concept.
Since then, they now design all their own cases and have a fulfillment warehouse handling all of their orders, inventory and shipping services. They can be found in Best Buy and have been featured on Business Insider, The Huffington Post and the LA Times, and of course INspiredINsider.com!
