On April 17, the 10 Rockstart Accelerator Smart Energy startups of 2014 will present themselves at Demo Day
Demo Day marks the highlight of our 100-day Winter program. At the event, the 10 Rockstart Accelerator startups of the year get the opportunity to rock the stage and share their vision with an audience of more than 400 investors, executives, Rockstart mentors and press. The goal of Demo Day is to show Dutch and foreign investors what progress the startups have made during the program; how their product has evolved; how their user/customer base has grown; and how they plan to change the world.
70% of our 2012 web/mobile startups got funded and one startup, ImgZine, is already a 20-man strong profitable business and has expanded to Silicon Valley. The startups of our latest batch are currently in a fundraising process with one, 3D Hubs, having already announced an undisclosed amount of seed funding led by Balderton Capital in August 2013.
Rockstart Accelerator’s Demo Day it’s not only about investment, it’s also very much about celebrating the startup spirit, being inspired and having a great time. We want to further build and grow the Rockstart community, that’s why in Demo Day 2013 we chose a bigger venue and opened a few tickets up for the general public to share this big Rockstart moment with the wider startup community. And what a better way to do it than with high quality pitches, startups and drinks
Have a taste of Demo Day 2013…
