Hi everyone,

Thank you. For all the inspiring, creative and world-changing applications we've received, it has really surpassed all our expectations.

In this email, we briefly want to let you know what will be the next steps for the coming days.

The selection process will take place in 3 simple rounds:
Round 1. Selection based on application in F6s: last results are in this Saturday, 09.00 (UTC+1)
Round 2. Selection based on 15 min. skype call/personal interview in Amsterdam and/or video Q&A.
Round 3: Selection with two rounds of 20 startups each, after which the final 10 will be selected.

Since we have had a huge number of applications in, over twice as much as we expected, we will have to manage our review process very efficiently so we can spend our energy on giving your applications the time and attention they deserve, instead of spending time answering emails with similar questions and the such.

Therefore, we kindly ask you the following:
- Schedule some time aside this weekend to create a answer a short video questionnaire with you (and your team), you will need it, when you are selected to the next round.
- Read your email on a bi-daily basis, to stay up to date.
- Go to the following page if you want to find out more details about the selection process.
rockstart.com/accelerator/evaluation-procedure/
- Set a side a number of timeslots next week (monday-thursday: 09.00 - 22.00), in case you are submitted to round 2.

Since we will look at all your applications during the day, we can only respond to emails at accelerator@rockstart.com, after 19.00 at night. If you have any other questions (FAQ)
please look FIRST to this page, to see if they are not already answered here:
rockstart.com/accelerator/evaluation-faq/

We really appreciate your help in making this process as smooth as possible and we are very excited to review all your applications!

You will know if you are selected to the next round, by this Saturday, 4th of February, 09.00 (UTC+1).
More details on selection timelines can be found in the page we previously mentioned.

Cheers,

The Rockstart Accelerator team

A few slight mistakes: "What is this video questiionaire we need to make alla bout?" and "explain what you do, why you do i tand who you are." This is from the evaluation FAQ page.
