In addition to an unprecedented economic support package to help all Luxembourg companies face the immediate shortage of cash and maintain employment, many particularly suitable for young innovative companies, the Luxembourg government also launched a call for projects aimed at supporting ecosystem initiatives to develop innovative solutions to tackle the health and economic crisis.
More than 300 startups applied to the StartupsvsCovid19 programme. The responsiveness and creativity of startups in proposing innovative solutions in this context were impressive. This is a sign of a mature ecosystem that fully fulfils its role as a driver of innovation for the economy, but also for society and the healthcare system.
A COVID-19 training simulator for healthcare, a mobile application for a restaurant to manage workflow and reduce interaction, a smart handle that self-sanitizes with UV light or a software to avoid shortage of non-urgent ambulance transportation… These are just a few solutions that are being developed by Luxembourg startups and which feature in this video. Above all however, the aim of Startup Luxembourg is to say a big thank you to the entire startup ecosystem.
