About Fit 4 Start


“The success of the programme is based on four key factors: an optimal environment, a highly qualified jury, a very responsive ecosystem and the confirmed support of the Ministry of the Economy.”

Sasha Baillie
CEO of Luxinnovation

“Participating in the Fit 4 Start programme helped us to clarify our strategy, finding partners and customers, prolonging our runway and improve our case towards investors. 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.”


Claudio Geyken

“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!”


Guy Schumann

“The Luxembourg startup scene is open and it is easy to connect with interesting people. I am really thankful to be here to network with various actors. I am looking forward to further build our presence in the Grand-Duchy after an intense and fruitful Fit 4 Start coaching phase.”


Andrea Danielli

“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.”

Franz Fayot-min

Franz Fayot
Minister of the Economy

“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.”


Jan Van Baelen
The Lunar Grid

“Having a kind of roadmap and KPIs to follow is a major takeaway. The support of the coaches and the challenges of the jury were interesting. The most important is being part of the ecosystem and getting connections with colleagues, participants and the entire ecosystem in Luxembourg.”


Roger Assaker

“The quality of the coaches and the fact that they challenged us and provided an external view on our business that helped us better shape our products to market needs is the most important takeaway from the programme for us.”


Mekki Mouaddeb

“I think really they pushed our limits. We had some clear expectations from the start on where we wanted to develop, how fast and what direction. They really challenged us. We wanted to contribute more faster to the objective that we set, which was also a further goal that we didn’t have before. So I think it really pushes you to not think small and to get a bigger picture in a faster time as well.”
