Ready to Rock! Kennedy Van der Laan is Legal Partner of Rockstart Accelerator

Rockstart logoKennedy Van der Laan is the proud Legal Partner of Rockstart Accelerator. This program helps the most promising teams from all over the world launch their own start-ups to break through on a worldwide scale.

Rockstart provides investment, office space, more than 100 mentors, coaching by experienced entrepreneurs and a one-month program in Silicon Valley. In the United States, the start-ups will meet entrepreneurs, investors and venture capitalists.

“The energy of Rockstart is amazing. You can tell that the teams are all working hard to become ‘the next big thing’. It is highly inspiring to be at the cradle of something beautiful together with them and we are proud that our firm is able to contribute”, says Jan Schouten, partner Corporate law at Kennedy Van der Laan.

“Last year, five of the ten start-ups gained their first investment, and therefore two others even received it before the program had started. One start-up is already in Silicon Valley. You can say that this is a fantastic result for us, and we look forward with confidence to the program that will be starting next week. The teams, and we, are greatly looking forward to it!”, says Don Ritzen, co-founder and Managing Director of Rockstart Accelerator.
