I’m involved as a mentor in an initiative that I think is very interesting for BizSpark startups : Rockstart Accelerator. It’s a new program where a selection of 10 startups will be helped to launch and market their product (internationally).
What they offer: coaching by 99 mentors (successful entrepreneurs, CEO’s and experts in the field of finance, legal and IP), up to €15.000 of seed investment (plus a sponsorpackage that is worth over €30.000 euro’s), 6-months of inspiring office space in downtown Amsterdam, Demo day (pitch in front of 100+ investors, journalists and VIP’s) and a business trip of 25 days co-working in Silicon Valley, where you met successful US entrepreneurs, pitch in front of VC’s and explore different partnerships.
The deadline to apply closes on the 31st of January. The programm starts on the 23rd of March, 2012 in Amsterdam.
