Launch your business venture and scale it on the European market

To enter the market and get off to a strong start, startups need quality support that is relevant to their stage of development. The international coaches, high-quality jury members and experts of Fit 4 Start, Luxembourg’s leading startup acceleration programme, offers precisely this. Coaching sessions, thematic expert sessions and feedback from the jury – notably including experienced entrepreneurs and investors – provide participating startups with all the components needed to put together a concrete business plan, assess the viability of their company as well as its attractiveness to potential investors, and identify the right business partners.

Fit 4 Start combines a group approach with personalised coaching adapted to each startup. Participants become part of a vibrant and international community of startups that often use Luxembourg as a launchpad for reaching European and global markets.
