Silicon Luxembourg - - COVER STORY -

DE­SCRIP­TION:

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. To do so, we rely on three main plat­forms:

The busi­ness in­cu­ba­tor, where we can also host for­eign com­pa­nies es­tab­lish­ing re­search & de­vel­op­ment ac­tiv­i­ties in Lux­em­bourg (eco­nomic di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion)

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

The Cowork­ing space/dig­i­tal Ex­pe­ri­ence Stu­dio, where we help val­i­date busi­ness con­cepts/ap­pli­ca­tions around dig­i­tal con­tent cre­ation by bring­ing peo­ple to­gether dur­ing spe­cific & the­matic hackathons or projects INI­TI­ATED BY: The Pub­lic Re­search Cen­tre Henri Tu­dor in 1998 (to­day LIST)
