Rockstart, the startup incubator originating from Amsterdam, has reached a new milestone. The company has finally moved and found a new headquarters at Rigakade 10 in the Houthavens. Houthavens is one of Amsterdam’s most promising new areas, being the construction site for many new apartment buildings, parks, and tunnels. But while the location has changed, Rockstart’s main mission has not. I met with Andrii Degeler, the Head of Brand and Community at Rockstart, to see the new building for myself.
The move was already announced in July, but it would not be realized until at least two months later. A lot has changed for the startup incubator since then. This new building at Rigakade 10 consists of 2800 m2, with a lot of outdoor space, a substantial area for events, a so-called “flex-desk hangar”, meeting rooms and numerous startup offices.
