One an attractive gateway to Europe, the other an excellent springboard onto the US market: Luxembourg and Wisconsin have more in common than one might initially believe. The Luxembourg Digital Trade Mission to Wisconsin at the end of March 2021 offered companies an overview of mutual business opportunities. A new partnership promoting start-ups was also announced.
Luxembourg is home to a dynamic startup ecosystem and is an attractive European investment hub for startups looking to scale up their activities. Launched in 2015 by the Ministry of the Economy, and managed by Luxinnovation, the National Agency for Innovation and Research in Luxembourg, Fit4Start has, in only a few years, become the leading programme for launching and accelerating startups in Luxembourg.
At a conference on March 25, 2021 dedicated to the European digital project GAIA-X, the Minister of Economy, Franz Fayot, launched the Luxembourg regional hub of GAIA-X which will be coordinated by Luxinnovation. In this role, the agency will help all interested public, private and research actors of the Luxembourg data ecosystem to become involved in this European initiative that aims to gather and develop common requirements for a European data infrastructure that is federated, secure and sovereign.
