StartUp Europe Awards presents a prize methodology for start-ups at local, regional, national and European level that fosters the open innovation and the collaboration between the different actors of the European ecosystem, through the private-public partnership to support entrepreneurs. This also helps to develop a strong network of contacts that will inspire and provided visibility to all the local start-ups so that, by using this network, they can scale their services and products at a global level.

Stefan Berend, Head of Start-up Support says, “The selection of the nominated companies was done in collaboration with the Luxinnovation Cluster Managers. StartUp Europe is a great opportunity for the nominees to gain visibility on an international scale.” Luxinnovation will provide further updates detailing information about each selected start-up.
