This meetings and co-creation space aims to submit the projects of the banking professions to these different actors of innovation. “Its ambition is to be a real accelerator of the innovation process within our bank to support us in our digital transformation,” Olivier Renault, the COO of Société Générale Luxembourg says.
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.
