    About

    Applications for Europe’s first AI accelerator by Rockstart will stay open until July 30, 2017, with the program itself kicking off in early October. The ten AI startups chosen for the program will spend six months in s’Hertogenbosch, working along with mentors and partners, including the locally-based Jheronimus Academy of Data Science (JADS).

    The startups selected for the AI accelerator by Rockstart will receive €20,000 cash and €80,000 of in-kind funding, office space in Den Bosch for the duration of the program, and support from mentors from relevant industries, as well as more than 50 perks and deals worth some €600,000. In addition to this, Rockstart is excited to announce that one of the lead investors of its acceleration programs has committed to invest at least €200,000 in an AI Startup of their choosing after the Demo Day.

    If you have any questions about our program, please send an email to ai@rockstart.com
