Amsterdam-based accelerator Rockstart just announced its second Digital Health class, including ten startups from four different continents. The 180-day Digital Health programme is focused on the launch of products and getting ready for a growth investment. At the end of the program the companies present themselves during Demo Day.
“I’m really excited we could attract health founders from countries like the Philippines, Zambia and the United States,” says Rune Theill, CEO of Rockstart. “The Netherlands is one of Europe’s leading markets for digital health services and with government tax benefits, innovation credits and grants, this is an ideal place for startups to build and scale their businesses.”
