Organized in collaboration with its partner Spuerkeess, the competition is aimed at entrepreneurs residing in Luxembourg since 2018 or 2019. Its objectives are to highlight the diversity of companies, help young entrepreneurs put themselves forward and provide a financial boost.
“The competition is open to all entrepreneurs, not just those who have been through our previous programs. We wanted to offer an initiative that highlights and showcases those who dare to take the plunge and essentially build Luxembourg. We are delighted that our partner Spuerkeess also believes in this project and is joining us,” says Nicolas Fries, CEO of nyuko.
