Rockstart is a new Amsterdam based accelerator program that aims to help the most promising teams to launch their startups and break through on a global scale. It starts on March 23 and has just closed its applications process (sorry for the late info).
The Rockstart accelerator provides up to €15.000 in seed investment, 6-months of office space, 99 mentors, coaching by entrepreneurs in residence and a 3-week road-trip to Silicon Valley. In the US, the Rockstart startups will meet serial entrepreneurs, pitch to investors and VCs, visit 500startups’ hub and co-work at Google campus for several days. In return, Rockstart takes an 8% equity stake in each of its startups.
The goal of Rockstart is to get its startups ready for international expansion and growth funding of between 100,000 and 1,000,000 Euro. Find out more and check out the following video:
