Redmond Channel Partner Magazine/Revenue Rocket Award

Every year, Redmond Channel Partner Magazine and Revenue Rocket
sponsor the RCP/Rocket Award.


The award recognizes and honors excellence in growth, and will be awarded to up to three IT services companies whose innovative business strategies resulted in sustained growth over a three-year period.

Entries for the RCP Magazine/Revenue Rocket Award are evaluated by a panel that includes Revenue Rocket CEO Mike Harvath, Redmond Channel Partners Editor-in-Chief Scott Bekker, and other distinguished guests with hands-on experience in growing an IT services business.

The award itself is evaluated on two key criteria:

1: The Strategies

What unique combination of strategies did your IT services company employ to generate the results you achieved? This section will constitute three quarters of the evaluation as we are most interested in understanding what and how various strategies drove success.

2: The Results
