If it weren’t for the Start-Up Development team we would not even have known about this competition, Luxinnovation has helped us in numerous other ways as well. Charles-Antoine Beyney, CEO Etix Everywhere

Etix Everywhere specialises in the construction and operation of scalable data centres and cable landing stations and was the first Luxembourg start-up to be selected as one of 18 future European "unicorns" – start-up companies valued at over $1 billion – for the Start-up Europe Comes to Silicon Valley (SEC2SV) programme.

Etix Everywhere - A future Luxembourg unicorn in our midst

20/04/2017

ETIX EVERYWHERE went to Silicon Valley

Created and organised by Mind the Bridge and co-organised with EIT Digital from September 12-20, 2016, SEC2SV was recommended to Etix Everywhere by Luxinnovation’s Start-up Development team. It offered the company a one-week opportunity to pitch their start-up and engage with major U.S. industry players for sales, funding and collaboration opportunities in order to rapidly scale up on the other side of the Atlantic.

Asked about the real value of SEC2SV Charles-Antoine Beyney said, “The week gave us a fantastic opportunity to win the heart of Silicon Valley and leverage Etix Everywhere business. The programme helped deepen Etix Everywhere’s roots, not only in Silicon Valley but all over the world.”

Headquartered in Luxembourg and founded in 2012, the company is quickly going global developing innovative technical solutions that can be deployed anywhere in less than 16 weeks Indeed, the “everywhere” part of the company’s name is becoming a reality. They have since opened offices in New York, France and San Francisco, and are working on data centres in Africa and Brazil.

Charles-Antoine is quick to thank Luxinnovation for their part in success, saying: “We are very grateful to Luxinnovation. They invited us to present Etix Everywhere to investors at an event held at the Luxembourg Embassy in London. What’s more, they helped us to obtain a research and development grant from the Luxembourg government.”
