Rockstart, one of Europe’s prominent accelerators based out of Amsterdam has upgraded its model to offer longer-term support for startups. Starting later this year, the company will add investments up until Series B to its initial offer of seed-stage funding and acceleration programs. By 2020, the new model will be implemented across all four of Rockstart’s core domains: AgriFood, Energy, Health, and Emerging Tech.
Launched in 2012, Rockstart has accelerated over 150 startups across the four core domains that have raised a total of over €87 million and generated more than 700 jobs. With the new model that includes follow-on funding, the company offers further access to capital and support for its alumni going through the growth stage.
