  • Name: Cédric Spaas
  • Occupation: founder and CEO of Arspectra
  • Nationality: from Belgium
  • Home: living in Luxembourg since spring 2018

After having lived in the three neighbouring countries (France, Germany and Belgium), Cédric Spaas, 31, created his company specialised in 3D augmented reality for the medical sector in Luxembourg. “We were attracted by the start-up ecosystem and its acceleration programmes such as the Fit 4 Start for healthtech companies. In our field, we must be very responsive and rely on quick and effective networking.” He thus appreciates the ease of establishing national and international business relationships while being based in Luxembourg.

The Museum of Modern Art (Mudam) located in the middle of the Kirchberg business district is one of his favourite places. “I love its light and its
serene and modern aspect. The beauty of simplicity.”
