Luxinnovation spoke with CEO Vineet Devaiah.

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

I was looking for soft-landing programmes into Europe.  I has looked at several across Europe and during the research the Fit4start programme blew away compared to any other programme by miles. I then spent time researching the programme over the internet and some of the press releases.

What was your biggest achievement?

With the Fit 4 Start programme our biggest achievement was launching the largest VR developer community. We grew from 0-5000 developers within 3 months and we achieved MVP (Minimum Viable Product) profitability around our first month.

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

  • Access to mentors and help from the team came quickly and was very effective.
  • Luxembourg is poised to be one of the best start-up hubs in the world and Fit 4 Start is the best way into it for an early stage company.
  • There was great help from the other teams and we learnt and shared a lot of best practices.

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

  • Building a better sales/BD (Business Development) approach for enterprise clients
  • Launching an MVP and iterating to find product-market fit

What are the upcoming challenges for your start-up?

  • Finding enterprise clients (clients with more than 1000 employees or more than 1M visits/month in terms of website traffic)
  • Raising our next round of funding so we can stay in Luxembourg and grow.

Tips and tricks of an entrepreneur:

What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs?

“Do your own thing as fast as possible, learn from your mistakes and iterate. “

Metri allows companies to save money and increase conversions by showing the right ads at the right time.
Companies can use triggers like weather data, stock market data, or website activity to automatically pause/un-pause ads or increase/decrease bids.
