Being in Luxembourg allows us to move fast in a close-knit environment and expanding our business internationally from a very international, central European location.”

Fit 4 Start was a really great experience, fantastic learning curve, absolutely loved our coaches, and without the programme, we wouldn’t have been able to develop a successful commercial product so fast!

"The Fit 4 Start acceleration programme is a key event in the agenda of Luxembourg’s strong startup ecosystem. We are committed to support young innovative companies and to accompany them on the road to success and in global expansion. The technology focus of startups fits perfectly with the strategic agenda and the promising business opportunities in Luxembourg, that has established itself as a top innovative country."

“Fit 4 Start is a unique accelerator. During the programme we were constantly pushed out of our comfort zone to better understand the customer perspective, which eventually led us to a sharp pivot. Under guidance of the expert coaches we then materialised the full business case. Looking back, it is a blast how much progress we made in just the 6 months.”
