A successful 2015 edition
The startup Wondermags was the winner of this first contest, organized in collaboration with Luxinnovation, the National Agency for Innovation and Research, and its ICT Cluster.
The event took place at Utopolis and gave 17 Luxembourg startups the opportunity to present their company in front of a jury from Docler Holding's management. The event also gathered around 100 people from the investment, ICT and startup scenes from Luxembourg.
"It is the first time that we organize such an event and surely not the last one. Our goal is to actively support the Startup and ICT ecosystem of Luxembourg. Listening to these talented entrepreneurs reminds us how our company started ten years ago in a garage, driven by a couple of young and enthusiastic entrepreneurs" - said Gyorgy Gattyan, Founder and Owner of Docler Holding

"This event is now anchored in time in Luxembourg. We received around 90 applications from International Start-ups to compete in this event and we selected 17 out of them, all ICT related" - said Karoly Papp, CEO of Docler Holding
A successful 2017 edition
The winner of the third consecutive Pitch Your Startup, Aiva Technologies, was announced during the ICTSpring Gala dinner. The company was chosen out of the 18 ICT startups pitching during the day.
Aiva is an Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) capable of composing emotional music. Aiva has been learning the art of music composition by reading through a large collection of music partitions, written by the greatest composers in order to create a mathematical model representation of what music is.
Out of a total of 160 applications from 25 different countries, the jury selected 18 ICT startups, based on the criteria of innovation, uniqueness, creativity and growth potential. This year, the prizes were equivalent to a total amount of 100,000 €.
PYSU is an initiative initiated originally by Docler Holding in 2014, with the collaboration of Luxinnovation. For this 4th edition, Docler has decided to open the competition to other partners and make the brand neutral. This has also allowed the increase of the prize’s value and the possibility for more startups to be winners.
PYSU is also a way to bring more local players together, get them to collaborate on one single event in order to promote Luxembourg as a startup hub and thus attract more talents.
