About Fit 4 Start


“We are thrilled to be a part of the Fit 4 Start programme! Luxembourg is the perfect place, geographically within Europe and because of its multicultural scene, to start our European expansion! Once we’re live in Luxembourg, feedback and validation from this market will allow us to expand to France and in Germany.”

“During the programme we learned how important it is to constantly experiment and validate your own hypotheses with people. While testing which one among our potential offers could interest customers, we actually managed to do our first sales and got a lot of interesting feedbacks. This phase definitely produced positive results.”

Real synergies have been created between the programme and the Luxembourg ecosystem that allows participating startups to test their solution in Luxembourg and benefit from an excellent platform to develop and grow in Europe.”
