Rockstart lanceert 2e AI-accelerator in 's-Hertogenbosch
Rockstart heeft in 2017 haar activiteiten uitgerold naar Den Bosch en organiseerde in 2018 in 's-Hertogenbosch het eerste Artificial Intelligence accelerator-programma van Europa. Teams vanuit Singapore, India, de VS, Zuid-Afrika en Italië kwamen naar Brabant om te werken aan hun producten, te sparren met mentoren en om in contact te komen met potentiële investeerders en klanten. In 2019 organiseert Rockstart het tweede Artificial Intelligence accelerator-programma, opnieuw in 's-Hertogenbosch. Binnenkort maakt Rockstart de namen van de voor dit programma geselecteerde bedrijven bekend.
