US-based Rocket Insights becomes part of European digital agency, Dept

Dept, the leading digital agency in Europe has acquired Rocket Insights, the fastest growing product agency in the United States. Rocket has an extensive track record of delivering innovative products and services to clients like Foundation Medicine and Fox and was responsible for the award-winning Virgin Pulse Apple Watch app.

Founded in 2015, Rocket Insights was built to bring a fresh approach to product design and development, specialising in the entire design and development lifecycle. Having spent years at product companies, the Rocket team started the type of agency they always wanted to hire: one that fully aligns with clients and accelerates their business.

“We were determined to keep Rocket independent. That is until we met Dept,” said Jesse Streb, partner at Rocket Insights. “Dept has had rapid growth across Europe, an incredible depth of data, creativity and technology services and a ‘cool’ factor that we admire. Adding our product expertise to Dept’s one-stop shop strategy is a real opportunity to create a new kind of agency for our clients.”
