After having been postponed in spring due to the Covid-19 crisis, the Luxembourg flagship accelerator programme is back with an autumn edition that will combine a digital selection process with face-to-face coaching.
Fit 4 Start is back and the next edition will definitely be a landmark event… Not only because Luxembourg’s leading startup acceleration programme will celebrate its 10thedition but also because the format of the next edition has been totally revisited to adapt to the current situation.
100% digital selection process
More than ever, for this new edition, digital technologies will be at the heart of the event. As before, the submission process for startups will remain online. Given the circumstances however, the selection process will also be fully online – a 100% (new) digital experience for our startups, our jury and the public.
100% physical coaching sessions
The current climate has also led us to adapt the duration of the coaching sessions for the selected startups. We believe face-to-face is paramount when it comes to coaching. To ensure the quality of the interactions as well as of the programme, coaching sessions will remain 100% face-to-face but will take place in Luxinnovation’s premises in January 2021, rather than in November 2020.
ICT, Space… and HealthTech
During the last spring edition, we received an unprecedented number of applications from both the ICT and the Space sectors. All projects that were pre-selected during this edition will automatically be retained for the pitching of our autumn edition. No further call for applications will be opened for ICT and Space startups. For our autumn edition, we will open a call-for-applications exclusively for HealthTech startups.
