Applications Open for Rockstart AgriFood 2021

Seize Your Chance for Fast Track Scaling

Applications for Rockstart AgriFood 2021 are now open and we couldn’t be more excited. If you are an agtech or foodtech startup and you’re ready to fast track the growth of your business, then don’t hesitate to apply for your chance to secure a coveted position in our next cohort!

At Rockstart, we provide tailored mentorship to founders as well as access to community and market, continuing to co-invest up to Series B. This means that when you join Rockstart AgriFood, you’ll get access to the people, insights and opportunities you need to fast track your growth and become #investmentready.

So what will you actually get?

When you join, you’ll get 1:1 support, workshops and sessions with well-known entrepreneurs and experts, plus the opportunity to pitch live to an audience of investors, partners and the greater Rockstart community and network during investor events, Ecosystem Day and Demo Day. Yes, you read that right! We ensure that you not only take a structured approach to scaling, but that you also learn to think from an investor’s perspective and then nail that pitch until you’ve got it down to a T (and deliver it to the right people). This means that you even have a chance of closing funding rounds during the program, like Rockstart AgriFood 2020 alumnus MoooFarm who closed €500K just four months into the program.

If you’re thinking of applying, here’s what some of our portfolio companies have to say about their experiences:
