Starting a Business in Luxembourg


There is a favourable trend in Europe and particularly in Luxembourg for the development of start-ups. Indeed, Luxembourg is a very attractive place for start-up companies through several incubators and accelerators programs proposed but also the possibility to benefit from subsidies from public or para-public sectors.


But these measures are often not enough for start-up companies and finding investors is necessary. This can be achieved with the help of:


 “Business Angels” are high net worth individual investors who seek high returns though investment of a share of their assets in an innovative and high potential company. Usually these former entrepreneurs or executives also offer their competencies, experiences, networks and time.

“Venture Capital Investors” are investment firms which inject capital in cash in exchange for shares and active role in the invested company (board participation, strategic marketing, governance, structure,..). They have a long term strategy allowing companies the time to mature into profitable organisations. Generally they have a limited operating time and their aim is to achieve a good rate return; they thus have an exit strategy too.


Luxembourg offers a wide range of solutions to allow entrepreneurs to structure their capital raising activity. Funds, both public and private placement funds, can provide interesting solutions, from venture capital, over private equity to listed equity investments. Corporations, promoters and entrepreneurs often use the holding structure in Luxembourg, the SOPARFI, to pool their equity participations and finance companies. The SLP, Special Limited Partnership, can also be considered when starting a business.

Business angels and Venture capital invest in new or very early companies with often a high degree of risk. Equity is then the common way to attract new investors. It provides the investors with a share in the overall returns and potentially even decision influence or even control over a company. Issuance of bonds and hybrid instruments allows entrepreneurs to attract capital without giving away equity, even for smaller and medium-sized enterprises.
