Are you ready? It’s time for a day full of intense pitching, inspirational start-up ideas and innovative projects! The most promising applicants of the Fit 4 Start Spring 2019 call will pitch their start-up businesses and compete for a place on the programme. At the end of the day, the jury will select and announce the next 10 participants of the 8th edition of Fit 4 Start.

Graduation night of Fit 4 Start

The ICT and HealthTech start-ups of Fit 4 Start #7 went through four months of intensive coaching, and were challenged every day by lean start-up experts. Developing a MVP, carrying out a customer discovery and testing the market-fit of their product are just some of the lessons the start-ups learned during the acceleration programme. Successful start-ups will present their progress and receive their Fit 4 Start diploma. Come and celebrate with them and the Luxembourg start-up community!
