On June 14, Amsterdam-founded accelerator Rockstart, which has programs running in Europe, Asia, and South America, presented its ten Web & Mobile Accelerator startup graduates at Demo Day in Westerpark. This year marks the sixth edition of the program, with 50 startups already having graduated from it. During the program, the startup founders had been engaging and working with experienced mentors and partners to help validate and scale their businesses.

With Demo Day marking the final milestone towards the end of the program, investors, partners, and affiliates gathered in Westerpark in anticipation of the ten pitches. The teams of this year’s Web & Mobile batch come from Germany, Iran, the Netherlands, Spain, India, Turkey, Egypt, and Kuwait. At the beginning of this endeavor, program director Rutger van Waveren said, “the entrepreneurial spirit of the founders is better than ever. It is the people that define the success of a startup, and I’m very confident about the teams that are in the current accelerator program.”
