About

Why? We believe that in order to be successful, early stage startups need:

Laser-like focus on building, developing and marketing their product or service.
Rock-solid advice and introductions from experienced entrepreneurs, investors and seasoned industry experts.
Introductions to the right launching customers, influential people in their industry and press-relations.

How? Aside from world class mentoring in the most innovative environment on the planet, we are offering all the startups in our program up to €15,000 in seed funding to help you along the way. Rockstart Accelerator will deal with the legal, administrative, hassles and distractions of setting up a company, providing you with the focus you need to start and continue on your entrepreneurial journey. Add to the mix over 99 of the world’s brightest minds in the form of our mentors and our visiting advisors, you will have a wealth of knowledge at your disposal to create the most innovative and disruptive company out there. In return, Rockstart Accelerator takes an 8% equity stake in each of our startups (not in each founder). We aim to change the rules in building a radically successful company. We’re here to take your startup to the next level. See Oscar talking about Rockstart accelerator here
