What is your startup/company about?
In 2017, Linc SA, a leading Luxembourg Internet group, opened its experienced IT department to assist companies in their ambitious IT projects. This is the way Linc Technology Partner has been created.
How did you come up with the idea?
The idea of proposing innovative solutions came out of LINC SA’s startup ecosystem and the development of new technologies, backed by our customer base and their interests in such products.
The exponential increase of the demand for IT projects in Luxembourg naturally lead to investments in this project. We deemed it fit to take our independence in order to make our expertise available to customer requests, in what we saw as the best way possible. We continue to hope it will.
“Today, we have 18 clients ranging from startup companies like Vireo and Sympass to established companies such as BIL, Banque de Luxembourg, or international firms like Deloitte.”

“We were not looking for a service provider but rather for a real partner, to support us in the development of Vireo. This is what we found, and felt, from the first meeting with Linc Technology Partner: a feeling of simplicity, trust, professionalism and most importantly: their great human side.” – Jonathan Marroyen, Founder & CEO of Vireo.
