Lucros Investment joins Rockstart Smart Energy programme 2017
Haarlem, The Netherlands, April 7th, 2017 - Lucros Investment B.V. today announced to have joined the Rockstart Smart Energy programme for 2017. With this investment Lucros will participate in all 10 start-ups off the class of 2017. Next to this Lucros will also serve as a mentor in the Rockstart programme.
The Smart Energy program helps pre-selected start-ups to build, validate and scale their business and find the best international product/market fit. Rockstart helps these start-ups better understand product design, market fit and business models by enabling them to directly work with relevant suppliers, users, professionals and other stakeholders in energy. The 10 participating start-ups will spend 150-days in an intensive start-up accelerator program located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Edwin Berkhout, Director Lucros Investment BV: “I am very proud to be able to call Rockstart our partner for its 2017 Smart Energy class. Since 2011 Rockstart has become the leading start-up accelerator in the Netherlands and a top 10 player globally. The focus of Smart Energy Rockstart has good overlap with our own areas of interest, thus making this partnership a perfect fit. I very much look forward in meeting all 10 start-ups”.
The Smart Energy program is being led by Freerk Bisschop, a seasoned venture developer in sustainable energy and clean tech, and will incorporate an extensive network of over 75 smart energy mentors, investors and energy partners. “With Lucros Investment as a partner we yet again add an experienced and professional clean tech investor to our ever growing global network, I look forward in working closely together to help accelerate our start-ups to the next level”.
