- Why Luxembourg
- Startup community
The Luxembourg startup ecosystem includes a mix of public and private players that are working alongside entrepreneurs to help them during their startup journey. Initiatives cover a wide variety of fields, from hands-on advice on the practical aspects of creating a company provided by the House of Entrepreneurship to the coaching and seed funding offered by acceleration programme Fit 4 Start and assistance with reaching international markets through Catapult or Gener8tor.
Many of Luxembourg’s incubators do not only offer premises to startups but also support programmes and advice.
As part of its efforts to strengthen the competitiveness of the Luxembourg economy, the government offers several types of R&D and innovation support measures. Support is available, for instance, for research and development projects or programmes and for process and organisational innovation in services. Growing startups that manage to raise private capital can also apply for aid for young innovative enterprises.
