About Us

In cooperation with Luxinnovation, Docler Holding launched a startup contest in 2014. The Pitch Your Startup (PYSU) initiative aims to assemble Luxembourg’s local players to support the country’s startup scene, to attract international attention, and to foster innovative ideas. Now well established, the competition opens its doors each year with the help of sponsors. Everyone’s goal? Bolstering chances of success for young businesses via financial contribution and reputation building. PYSU calls the same place home each year since 2016: ICT Spring Europe, the international tech summit.

At PYSU’s 5th edition, 60 startups will have a chance to pitch on May 21st in Luxembourg. They must fall into one of the four following categories: FinTech and RegTech; Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning & Big Data; Smart Living; Cybersecurity. Winners will be announced on May 21st during the ICT Spring Gala Dinner.
