Field of activity:
Luxinnovation contributes to the economic development of Luxembourg by fostering innovation, fuelling international growth and attracting foreign direct investment.
We are a key and trusted partner for those who are interested in – and committed to – launching successful innovative activities in Luxembourg, from entrepreneurs and managers of start-up companies to foreign enterprises and investors.
The services specifically oriented to innovative start-ups englobe providing information, challenging them on their documentation and pitch, supporting them in their market validation and orienting them in terms of funding. One programme to highlight is the bi-annual Fit 4 Start contest, which rewards and provides coaching for the best 5 start-ups per batch.
In 2016, the Start-up team received 567 new projects, met with 321 new entrepreneurs and supported 63 start-ups in their creation. After 2 years of existence, 82% of supported start-ups are still alive and accounted for a creation of 220 jobs.
