Launched in 2015 by the Ministry of the Economy, and managed by Luxinnovation with the support of Technoport and the Luxembourg-City Incubator, Fit 4 Start has, in a few years, become the leading programme for launching and accelerating startups in Luxembourg.

Fit 4 Start provides entrepreneurs with intense coaching, attractive pre-seed funding and access to key networks.

The international character is growing from edition to edition. Over 1,800 start-ups applied to the first 10 editions of the programme. 78 start-ups participated in the various support sessions and 56 graduated. The start-ups participating in the first 9 editions of Fit 4 Start have raised, since their creation, a total amount of more than €15.2 million from private investors.

476 start-ups from 60 countries responded to a call for applications launched last summer for the 10th Fit 4 Start edition.

The Fit 4 Start programme continues to evolve. The next step has just been determined, with the call for applications to the 11th edition that was launched on 15 March 2021.

The calls for applications for ICT and space startups are now open! Interested startups will need to submit their applications by 17:00 on 15 April 2021.
