Hopes is the “UBERIZATION” for the distribution of green energies.

How did you first hear about Luxinnovation and our Fit 4 Start programme?

We heard about Fit 4 Start through different channels such as LinkedIn, Events and a chat with a Luxinnovation employee.

What was your biggest achievement?

So far, we can name two things as our biggest achievements: First, we truly became a team that works as one and second, we secured some key partnerships for our start-up project.

Name 3 things you especially like about the Fit 4 Start programme:

  • Coaching
  • Reputation
  • Clear objectives

What did you learn so far by participating in the Fit 4 Start programme?

We arrived to the programme with a good idea and now we will graduate with a real start-up business. We learned to focus on one project at a time, to start small and then to grow gradually. We learned to make a clear market research and to test different approaches to market.

What are the upcoming challenges for your start-up?

Our next big goal is to graduate successfully from Fit 4 Start and secure the full amount of 150,000 Euro funding from the Ministry of the Economy.

Tips and tricks of an entrepreneur:

What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs?

Be in the present moment. If you believe that something is important, just remember that anything is possible and go for it, even if the odds are against you.

“We grow when we are out of our comfort zone.”
