Are you looking for a gateway to Europe, a test market for a new service or product, or a strong industrial or academic partner? Luxembourg's start-up ecosystem has taken a quantum leap in the past few years. Today, it is an investment hub attracting increasingly more innovative start-ups and companies that want to consider their operations onto a different scale.
In the heart of Europe
Ideally located in Central Europe and benefiting from a multilingual culture, Luxembourg is the perfect location for start-ups that wish to tackle Europe's major markets, such as France and Germany. It represents a very interesting test market, especially when it comes to high potential technologies such as 5G.
Given its very open business environment - you can create a company in English, French or German - every start-up can benefit from support at all levels through access to a large number of incubation options, a network of decision-makers and diverse public and private funding opportunities.
Research and data
Aside from the entrepreneurial factor, Luxembourg has an optimal and dynamic research infrastructure. It consists of a university and four research institutes active in the following sectors: information and communication technologies (ICT), industry and health.
Luxembourg's economy counts on digital data to grow. All of the services and products designed in connection with data benefit from acute attention, in particular when they are created by start-ups. Luxembourg is one of the countries that took part in the European initiative EuroHPC. Soon, it will have its own high-performance computer infrastructure.
Luxembourg's start-ups today
The ecosystem is currently made up of 350 start-ups, as well as approximately fifteen incubators and three major start-up meetings per year:
