EBN Member, Technoport S.A, has been awarded ‘Top Challenger Europe’ at the World Incubation Summit in Toronto. This award recognised the impressive work that Technoport team is providing in Luxembourg to support incubation and entrepreneurship. Indeed, Technoport is celebrating this year 20 years of incubation in Luxembourg and is co-organising the EBN Congress, ‘Future of Innovation’, from 6 to 8 June 2018 in Esch-sur-Alzette, to showcase the importance of looking into new models and strategies for the future of innovation.
As the winner of “Top Challenger Europe”, EU|BIC Technoport SA proves that its technology-based incubator coupled with co-working space and Fab Lab is the right mix for supporting entrepreneurs from the idea to scale up and internationalisation.
