Now, he's launching his own organization -- reDesign Mobile -- with ambitious plans to work with Silicon Valley startups on everything from mobile to payments. As the region is seeing soaring real estate prices and towering startup valuations, he's ready to lend his experience to entrepreneurs. Rocky sits with TheStreet.com to talk tech trends, hiring, startups, and about how he's growing his new organization -- thanks to an ambitious new recruitment process.
