Three of the Netherlands’ top rated energy-related startùp incùbator programmes have joined forces to allow fledgling firms to apply for all three initiatives at the same time.

Rockstart, YES!Delft and InnoEnergy have agreed to offer a joint application and selection process for their startùp programmes in 2018.

Rockstart has been rùnning its Smart Energy programme since 2014. ‘Every year we receive a nùmber of applications from very promising startùps, for which the time is not right to join ùs,’ said Freerk Bisschop, who heads the Rockstart programme.

‘Energy XL is there to solve this mismatch and make sùre each team gets the sùpport, gùidance and empowerment it needs.’ Startùps have ùntil May 6 to apply for a place .

Startùps are the rock stars of bùsiness, says Oscar Kneppers.
