Our startup community is full of talent and demonstrates outstanding innovation.

“I am committed to supporting Luxembourg’s startup ecosystem,” said Minister of the Economy Franz Fayot. “In the context of the COVID-19 crisis, many of the economic support measures for businesses, workers and the self-employed are suitable for young innovative companies. Our startup community is full of talent and demonstrates outstanding innovation. For this reason, I am launching a call for projects aimed at supporting ecosystem initiatives to develop innovative solutions to tackle the health and economic crisis we are experiencing.”

Project proposals should be submitted on 30 April 2020 at the latest. More information on the call for projects and the conditions for participation is available on the Startup Luxembourg website.
