Following the announcement last December, Vodafone officially released during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona the brand new name of its incubator headquartered in Luxembourg: Tomorrow Street Innovation Center. Prime Minister of Luxembourg Xavier Bettel took the opportunity to introduce the initiative to the all world during a visit at the world’s largest mobile conference.

The goal of this new innovation center is indeed to host more mature startups and help them scale internationally by leveraging Vodafone’s strategic worldwide network of partners and resellers. The center should become operational in 2017. The Vodafone Procurement Company has been present in Luxembourg for almost 15 years and employs around 300 people today.

Ninian Wilson, CEO Vodafone Procurement Co SARL, says, “The innovation center creates a unique platform to help small companies go global. The environment in Luxembourg is ideally suited to supporting such activities in the ICT space.” “I believe that this program will not just attract companies to the Center, but also around it. The impact for the whole ecosystem will thus certainly be bigger than just the activity of the Center,” concludes Diego De Biasio, CEO of Technoport and main partner of the incubator.
