“I expect to see a lot of inspiring teams and product ideas, it's always extremely exciting to witness the very beginning of things that can change our world in the future. I also want to seize the opportunity to encourage aspiring entrepreneurs to keep looking for the right product-market fit and never give up. Perseverance is key – it's always been”, says Andrii Degeler.
Rockstart, one of Europe's first multi-vertical startup accelerators, was founded in Amsterdam in 2011 with a goal to provide startups with access to the market, capital, knowledge, and community. Since then Rockstart has become the specialist in building entire ecosystems around specific domains—such as Digital Health, Smart Energy, and Artificial Intelligence. Rockstart is actively building up entrepreneurial infrastructures around the world with its acceleration verticals, as well as early-stage startup programs, Rockstart Impact and Rockstart Launchtrack.
