The Plug&Play experience

Since end of 2011 the Government of Luxembourg and Plug & Play entered into a joint strategic collaboration and partnership to seek out the most talented technology startups and emerging companies from Luxembourg and provide them access to the resources necessary to accelerate, grow and launch their companies in Silicon Valley. Due to the types of companies hosted at Technoport we closely collaborate with the Ministry of the Economy and Foreign Trade to identify and select these companies.

Once this selection is done the qualified copmanies can access a 3-months acceleration program at Plug&Play where they will be introduced to the Silicon Valley ecosystem and business environment through specific workshops; coaching activities around funding, business strategy review, pitching and scalability through the Plug&Play Ventures Team. A dedicated Business Relationship Manager will also on a regular basis review milestones and objectives set at the beginning of the stay. You will also have access to Executives in Residence who are industry and domain experts and can be potential mentors, advisors and consultants.

In terms of logistics you will be hosted on the Luxembourg Pavillion with full service office space, free access to networking events, access to professional service partners (legal, IP, accounting, HR, etc.)

companies that are selected by Plug&Play can also participate at major event like the Plug&Play EXPO where they can either have a booth or have a booth and make a demo. To access this platfom additional qualification is required.
