FI-WARE: Future Internet Grants for web-entrepreneurs & small businesses!

when: 6 March 2015, 12:00 – 14:00

where: Technoport Belval, 9 Avenue des Hauts-Fourneaux in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg

The Future Internet platform FI-WARE is an open architecture for developers, service providers, and companies to develop innovative products. FI-WARE Generic Enablers (GE) are public and royalty-free. Supported by the European Union, this platform allows companies and web-entrepreneurs to create and deliver digital services at a low cost.

FI-WARE provides

  • €80 million funding, implemented by 16 accelerators, each with a different focus (healthcare, smart cities, finance, smart energy, smart agrifood, multimedia, transport, and manufacturing)
  • Building blocks for the creation of internet-based products and services
  • Business support, mentoring, and networking
  • FI-LAB, an experimentation platform

As demonstrated by the experience and collaboration of Luxembourg-based startups and companies that have sprung up since the first info session in September last year, FI-WARE provides amazing opportunities for them to kick-start or upscale their internet business. The FI-WARE solution itself, as well as its lean and decentralised funding system, lower entrance barriers and allow for the submission of proposals from a vast variety of domains.

Luxinnovation and Technoport have teamed up again, to present FI-WARE and opportunities to finance the development of innovative services and applications at another info session.

The event is aimed at small businesses, startups and web entrepreneurs who develop apps or services, and want to connect with the community. It will consist of several presentations and will feature three special guests – Dr Raimund Bröchler (Senior Delivery Manager, INTRASOFT International SA), Vincent Demortier (Manager, 4PLanet SA), and Evangelos Papadopoulos (Founder & CEO, TheMarketsTrust).
