Over the past decade, Amsterdam-HQ'd accelerator Rockstart has backed upwards of 280 startups, seen nine exits, and €150 million raised by portfolio companies culminating in an alumni value of approximately $1 billion.
Traditionally focusing on Energy and AgriFood startups, in April of this year the firm opened the application process for its newest fund, Emerging Tech, one backed by Vækstfonden (Danish Sovereign Wealth Fund), the family office De Hoge Dennen, several tech entrepreneurs, Rockstart alumni founders, and other informal investors
We sat down with Rockstart's man at the helm for this fund, Michael Bjørnlund to define what exactly Rockstart views as emerging tech (hint: Industry 4.0 & Advanced Analytics, Smart Societies, Digital Health, Data Privacy/Security, and more general applications), what unique selling points Rockstart offers above and beyond other accelerators on the market today, and how and why he'll be swimming to Rockstart's inaugural event, Forward 2022 in September.
All this and more with Rockstart's Managing Partner Emerging Tech Fund Europe - Michael Bjørnlund!
