Diving into the ecosystem
A number of initiatives have been developed in Luxembourg to help your start-up fulfil your goals.
The support starts at the early phases with the definition of the innovative idea. Actors such as Luxinnovation or 1,2,3 Go can help you define, analyse and structure a business idea, as well as set up the business plan.
Luxinnovation, the National Agency for Innovation and Research, offers a wide range of integrated and personalised services, which are based on a sectorial approach and provided free of charge to businesses of any size (including start-ups) and to public research organisations.
The 1,2,3 Go organisation is based on a network of more than 400 coaches who are themselves entrepreneurs and experts in various fields.
Some early phase initiatives and contests:
Some useful websites and communities:
- SiliconLuxembourg for information related to start-ups, from events and news to jobs
- LinkedIn for news and local start-up community
