Rocket Mortgage Detroit Demo Day is an annual pitch competition that invests over $1 million into Detroit-based, early-stage companies with an ambition to scale. Our goal is to showcase, inspire, and invest in the Detroit entrepreneurial community. Demo Day is one part of a larger strategy of the Rocket Community Fund to elevate Detroit as a destination for small businesses and high growth startups by deploying capital and supportive resources.

The Rocket Community Fund is the philanthropic arm of the Rock Family of Companies. Their mission is to support inclusive, thriving and resilient communities by making data-driven investments in housing, employment and public life. Through its For-More-Than-Profit model, the Rocket Community Fund recognizes that business and community are inextricably linked, and it purposefully brings together all of the assets of the Rocket Mortgage and Rock Family of Companies business – team member talent, technology, policy advocacy, and philanthropic resources – to invest in comprehensive community development in Detroit and across the country.
