The event featured 14 high-tech Israeli start-ups that were selected from a wide range of applicants. They included award-winning companies and graduates from world-renowned incubator programs, offering cutting-edge FinTech solutions and functional products for sectors of relevance to the Luxembourg financial industry. During the first day, start-ups met at nyuko, a public-private organization supporting Luxembourg’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. The start-ups were introduced to a series of key institutions and stakeholders including the Luxembourg financial regulator (CSSF), venture capitalists, representatives from the Ministry of Economy and the Lux Future Lab to learn more about Luxembourg FinTech and start-up environment. A testimonial was provided by fellow Luxembourg FinTech start-up SnapSwap.
