In its premises in the heart of the Station district, #LePLateauLUX has more than 100m² of work space and 1,000m² of living space. It will work closely with Luxembourg House of Financial Technologies (LHoFT) and Luxinnovation, for its expertise in supporting innovative start-ups, particularly in accessing financing.

 

 

“A comprehensive vision”

“We are very pleased with this initiative, which is helping to strengthen the positioning of the Luxembourg Start-up Ecosystem next to Paris, London and Berlin,” Jean-Michel Ludwig, Director Start-up Support & SME Performance at Luxinnovation, explains. “As a partner, we will provide foreign start-ups with a comprehensive vision of what Luxembourg can do for them in development”.

Technological synergies are also being studied with Telindus, as well as the possibility for selected start-ups to access the Fintech Acceleration Platform, designed jointly by Finologee and Clearstream Services, to develop and test their products and services.

Start-ups as well as internal project developers will also be able to work with Expon Capital to get in touch.
