Blockrocket is an accelerator program and early-stage investor for blockchain startups predominantly in German-speaking Europe. Blockrocket offers an exclusive ecosystem to help startups, corporates, and investors to leverage the potential of blockchain technology. Since its launch in 2019, Blockrocket has acquired numerous well-known partners and mentors and handpicked some of the best blockchain startups among 150 applications for its program.

The cooperation dates back to February 2021 when BFG made a strategic investment in Blockrocket.

“Over the past two years, Blockrocket has built a model accelerator for early-stage blockchain start-ups especially in Europe,” says Wolfgang Männel, Senior Partner at BFG Blockchain Founders Group. “Its outreach, monthly pitch events, and frequent panels provide a great platform for startups and potential investors alike and an outstanding deal flow.”

“BFG adds long-standing venture capital experience to our investment business”, says Benjamin Horvath, Managing Director of Blockrocket, “and allows us to provide even more support for early-stage blockchain start-ups as well as deploy the necessary capital required for larger seed investments.”

The combined operations will invest under the Blockrocket brand and pursue an active portfolio management approach helping start-ups with recruiting, client contacts, and investors for Series A follow-on financing.

BFG/Blockrocket invests tickets of up to € 500,000 in the seed and late-seed stage of blockchain start-ups.
