Great ideas in Luxembourg abound. The country’s attractive and successful acceleration programme for ICT start-ups, Fit 4 Start, is gearing up for 2018. The next edition offers start-ups with innovative ideas and a clear commitment the opportunity to benefit from intensive coaching, attractive pre-seed capital and access to the best networks. Interested? You still have time to apply up until 25 January 2018 (end of the day).

Innovation is the fuel that drives a country’s economy. Fit 4 Start really wants to attract more innovative entrepreneurs from Luxembourg (as well as outside its borders). Our programme has become renowned in the start-up community as a valuable launch pad for early-stage ICT companies.

You are:

  • setting up or have incorporated an ICT company with an innovative slant in Luxembourg less than 12 months before the start of the programme;
  • a team of at least 2 people, of whom at least one will work full time on the project during your participation in Fit 4 Start.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to present themselves during a competitive pitching session where the final participants will be selected.

Fit 4 Start offers:

  • 16 weeks of expert coaching in Lean Start-Up, a structured methodology for rapid product and service development, and the Agile methodology which calls for high flexibility and the ability to pursue and realise well-defined short-term objectives;
  • Free access to co-working space in a business incubator; and
  • A grant of €50,000, to be matched by €10,000 of equity.

An additional €100,000 is offered by the Ministry of the Economy to start-ups that have both successfully graduated from Fit 4 Start and have managed to raise at least €50,000 of private equity after the end of the programme
