Like many successful entreprenuers, Andrew Rocklage has had an action-packed journey to the top. That said, if there is one lesson to be learnt from his story it is that success in entrepreneurship is not bound by age. At a time where most business collumns covering successful and wealthy entreprenuers almost exclusively feature old men, Mr. Rocklage is one of the few outliers.
Still under the age of 40, Mr. Rocklage is one of the most recognized businessmen in the city of Boston. Given how fast his stock is rising, we likely will not have to wait too long for him to also become nationally and globally recognized.
Mr. Rocklage’s educational undertakings transcend the fields of business and law. He received his first degree, BS, cum laude, in Sports Managemnent and Economics from the Isenberg School of management at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He later received a Juris Doctor degree from Suffolk University Law School.
The unique and challenging combination of law and business in his studies set the precedent for the unconventional career choices Mr. Andrew Rocklage would make. His first string of jobs were in the sports sector where he served in various low level jobs at Major League Lacrosse and later at the Boston Red Socks. His legal knowledge was then called upon for a two-year stint at Cubist Pharmaceuticals as a legal consultant.
Soon after, Mr. Rocklage then took on successive law clerk responsibilities at Doherty, Wallace, Pillsbury & Murphy P.C. and Avery, Dooley & Noone, LLP. He finally bowed out of employment after briefly serving as a corporate counsel to EPIRUS Biopharmaceuticals.
In 2015 Andrew Rocklage launched his own business, Sky Zone Trampoline Park. In line with his adventurous and risk-taking persona, this business was not an in the business areas he had spent years gaining experience on, while employed.
That said, he has done really well since launching the Sky Zone Trampoline Park. Located in Boston, the park is one of the most popular local recreational spots in the city.
With the number of new visitors increasing every year and customer retention are also being strong, Sky Zone will likely continue to be a successful venture for years to come.
In his time at the helm of Sky Zone Trampoline Park, MR. Rocklage has shown certain traits that distinguish him from other businessmen. He has a very high business acumen level. As a result, his understanding and predictions of what Boston consumers are rarely ever off.
Additionally, he has an uncanny ability to identify good talent and effectively get the most out of them. At Sky Zone, for example, one of the reasons the company has gotten high customer return rates despite only being two years old is the friendliness and approachability of the staff at the facility.
