Researchers and start-ups can apply to pitch their innovative ideas at the third edition of Mind & Market, which will take place on Tuesday, 14 November 2017 in Belval. In response to the increasing focus on on entrepreneurship in Luxembourg, the Mind & Market in Luxembourg initiative is broadening its scope and has invited new associates on board.
Mind & Market in Luxembourg organises an annual forum where startups can pitch their projects and get valuable feedback from experienced market players. The third edition of the forum will take place in Maison du savoir in Belval on Tuesday, 14 November 2017. Deadline to submit applications is Sunday, 15 October.
What started off as an initiative by Deloitte Luxembourg, FNR, Luxinnovation, University of Luxembourg and Mind & Market ASBL in 2015, has now expanded to also include RTL, Fedil, Paul Wurth Incub and Equilibre.
The overarching goal of Mind & Market in Luxembourg is to help creative minds in Luxembourg and the Greater Region turn their innovative ideas into business reality. The previous editions of the forum showcased respectively 35 and 24 innovative projects of different maturity level across a range of categories.
This year’s edition will include also more established projects and startups, without taking the spotlight away from first-stage ideas. The first prize winners of both the 2015 and 2016 edition of Mind & Market Luxembourg were FNR Proof of Concept (PoC) beneficiaries.
