What is the LOIC?

The Luxembourg Open Innovation Club was born in the understanding that big companies and startups need each other. Startups need ways to accelerate validation, market adoption and growth. On the other side, traditional companies need to multiply their bets on innovation by accessing new solutions, business models etc.

In partnership with the actors of the local entrepreneurial ecosystem, we enable collaboration between startups from everywhere in the world and big groups based in Luxembourg.

Event format

The LOIC selects innovative start-ups that will pitch during the event, followed by an inspiring keynote speaker. The event takes place at one of the members’ location and all members are invited to join.
