As competition is strong on today’s job market, adding qualifications to your profile will bring you competitive advantages. This is one of the reasons why the University of Luxembourg decided to launch an Entrepreneurship Programme which gives students across all faculties regardless of their level of studies (Bachelor, Master, Doctorate/PhD) and the University employees the possibility to participate in initiatives that train skills essential to be successful in their future working life.

Entrepreneurship Programme works closely with the University of Luxembourg Incubator - a place dedicated to provide support in bringing your business idea to the market. To allow you getting a good impression of what it takes to run your own business, the Incubator invites entrepreneurs from Luxembourg and abroad to share their story and to provide advice to those who want to follow the same path. During Incubator’s events, you will have the opportunity to establish new contacts, step-by-step building a valuable career network. Get in touch with our team and ask for a meeting to discuss your startup project or take advantage of the Incubator’s mentoring programme.

Tailor-made events to unlock imagination and foster entrepreneurial thinking

The events hosted at the Incubator inform participants on what it takes to be successful in their professional life – whether using their skills to drive the business of established companies as “intrapreneurs”, or to develop their own business ideas as entrepreneurs.

The versatile range of events includes:

  • Workshops: On how to convincingly and confidently present your ideas, to network,to get funding for your start-up project, to make a business out of your idea or doctoral research. All workshops have a collaborative, hands-on character, allowing participants to improve their teamwork skills.
  • Inspirational talks and round tables: First-hand insights are key to making the right choices in your professional life. The Incubator invites local and international speakers, delighted  to provide you with a realistic picture of business and entrepreneurship.
  • Networking: Building a sound professional network today is essential to fulfilling your professional ambitions – be it finding the right job or the right partners to make a business project move forward. This is why networking opportunities are always an integral part of the events hosted by the Incubator.

Discover Incubator’s flagship event - the Ideation Camp - a 72 hours hands-on entrepreneurship workshop which happens twice a year:

 

Some of the young entrepreneurs who were inspired by their Ideation Camp experiences have gone on to create their own start-ups and are now incubated at the University of Luxembourg.

A place to breed ideas and give them wings for their take off on the Luxembourgish market

Besides hosting events, the Incubator also offers a range of services to start-ups that are supported by members of the University of Luxembourg. The package for the start-ups incubated at the Belval Campus comprises:

  • Office space;
  • Access to the full infrastructure at the Incubator building;
  • Access to the greater University infrastructure;
  • Administrative support;
  • Mentoring, i.e. consultancy with experienced entrepreneurs and professional experts;
  • Access to a widespread business network inside Luxembourg and even beyond the national borders;
  • Visibility through the University of Luxembourg media channels; and
  • Visibility via showcases at other events organised by the Incubator.

Unlike existing incubators in Luxembourg, the incubator of the University is open to start-ups from all industry branches, be it FinTech, BioTech, Horeca or EduTech. It offers its start-ups a first doorway to the Luxembourgish entrepreneurial ecosystem and full support throughout their maturation process.

Thanks to a close collaboration of the University of Luxembourg Incubator with specialised business incubators, its start-ups can incubate outside the University once having met the specific requirements of the respective incubators related to their industry.

Students and employees alike are welcome to meet the Incubator Team and discuss their start-up ideas at any time.
