WHAT DID YOU PREVIOUSLY KNOW ABOUT THE STARTUP ECOSYSTEM?
It was not new for me. However, now I'm more exposed to how it works and to different people who are in the field. The Startup Weekend was a good starting point to connect with people.
For me, it was definitely new. Ideation Camp was my first experience and I did not expect it to be like this. I used to watch tech competitions or hackathons happening in the US and I was so inspired. I didn't know we actually have these events in Luxembourg as well.
It's new! I knew there were startup weekends in India and Estonia. I didn't know of anything here; only the Ideation Camp initiative.
I arrived in Luxembourg a few months ago so it's very new for me.
Coming from a family with a background in economics, it wasn't the first time I saw this kind of entrepreneurship. We also had it in my home country, Kosovo. I've already been exposed to it a bit. My first experience was through the Ideation Camp, where I learned how to structure ideas.
It was completely new. I was really surprised how big it actually was. It's really beneficial to drive innovation and try to improve the world, proposing solutions that can solve problems. There is definitely an ecosystem here.
