VISION: BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN IDEAS & SUCCESS BY CREATING THE RIGHT ECOSYSTEM AROUND INNOVATION & ENTREPRENEURSHIP
To achieve this vision, we gave ourselves the mission to offer the best environment for the creation and development of technology-oriented and innovative companies/projects in Luxembourg. We try to reduce the failure rate by giving entrepreneurs access to our coaching (internal and external), to our experts and partners, as well as to an adequate infrastructure and work environment.

The Fablab, where we support product-oriented projects & rapid prototyping. This unit is hosted at 1535°
