  • free access to co-working space in a business incubator; and
  • a grant of €50,000, to be matched by €10,000 of equity.

 

You are:

  • setting up or have incorporated an ICT company with an innovative slant in Luxembourg less than 12 months before the start of the programme;
  • a team of at least 2 people, of whom at least one will work full time on the project during your participation in Fit 4 Start.
