Technoport® ltd. has been set-up back in June 2012 as the result of the merger between the former Technoport®, a technology-oriented business incubator launched by the Public Research Center Henri Tudor back in 1998, and Ecostart I and II, business support infrastructures developed since 2004 by the Ministry of the Economy and Foreign Trade.
THE TECHNOLOGY BUSINESS INCUBATOR:
this activity is the core business of Technoport®. The goal here is to promote and support the creation and development of innovative and technology-oriented companies in Luxembourg. Technoport® provides either individual entrepreneurs or foreign innovative businesses with access to resources that they typically lack in terms of business support services and infrastructure. The incubator hosts on average 40 companies and 25% (18) of the companies that successfully left the incubator (73) have been acquired by foreign companies.
THE EVENT SPACE:
the goal here is to offer individuals, small teams, and corporates the opportunity to access multidisciplinary communities of like-minded persons to co-design or co-develop their products or ideas. This is done through physical space but also through the organization of events and hackathons like StartupWeekend, SpaceHack, Apps Foundry Contests, or other co-design events.
