The names of the 10 start-ups that will participate in the 8th edition of Fit 4 Start are now known. 50 entrepreneurs from all over the world came to promote their project during Pitching and Graduation Day, which took place on Thursday 28 March at Kinepolis in Kirchberg.
The 7th edition of Luxinnovation’s coaching programme had a new look and feel about it. For the first time since its launch, five start-ups from the health technologies sector were selected, on top of the ten selected from the ICT sector.
The start-up specialising in online appointments for hairdressers and beauty salons closed its first round in mid-January, bringing together exclusively Luxembourg investors.
Following the success of the previous edition, which included nearly 230 applications from 38 different countries, the next season of the Fit 4 Start programme will once again reward the most innovative projects in information and communication technologies. The countdown has begun, ideas and projects can be submitted before 28 January 2019.
Since 2006, the economic and financial magazine Paperjam has been publishing, every two years, the ranking of the 100 most influential economic decision-makers in Luxembourg. For the 2018 edition, announced Wednesday at the Rockhal, Luxinnovation’s CEO, Sasha Baillie, appears in 16th position.
