About Us

Skyrocket Your Team is created for remote teams across the world to feel engaged and connected despite the physical distance. Through our well-designed, unique, and engaging experiences, remote teams get to learn and grow together, as a team. We are a remote team on our own and we have been working together for years.

Our Story

It was in March 2020 when the five of us —Gerardo, Jorge, Ksenia, Mayri and Tom— reconnected to get together on “lockdown” Sundays and participate in an online pub quiz. We enjoyed spending time with each other and as they say… some friendships never grow old!

Through a friend we got to experience a simple online escape room and realized its potential for learning and development. As an international remote team operating from four different countries and three timezones, we know very well all the challenges that come with working remotely: loneliness, disconnection and miscommunication. We want to help companies overcome these challenges so their teams can rise to new heights!

To speed up our idea validation, we decided to take part in the EUvsVirus Hackathon during the last weekend fo April 2020, with the idea of online escape rooms for team building. Over the course of 48 hours we created, polished and piloted with our mentors the fist concept of the Skyrocket Your Team experience. As a result, we were awarded by the Vodafone Institute for Society and Communications as the winner of the Efficient Team Work category of the Business Continuity Track and got business consulting services from Cordial.

Soon after, we joined the Bridge For Billions and Seedstars programmes, launched in Product Hunt and got our first customers to experience the Mission ESA-43633. You could say that Skyrocket Your Team skyrocketed during Summer 2020!
