Budding young entrepreneurs from all over Luxembourg showed their business sense at a Dragon's Den-style event at Utopolis cinema on Thursday.
The 11th Forum of Mini-Enterprises saw 15 different companies set up by college students present their service or product to a panel of six judges.
The judges, selected from across Luxembourg's business landscape and youth services, listened to a four-minute presentation from each mini-business and then faced the tough job of awarding seven cash prizes to the best businesses.
With a range of imaginative ideas on show, including iPhone apps for education services, sustainable water bottles, jewellery, educational games and bespoke clothing firms, judges could not have faced a tougher decision.
Winners move on to European young entrepreneur contest
The mini-enterprise award went to Agribook from the agricultural college in Ettelbrück and the team of youngsters will head to Romania from July 19 to 21 for the JA-YE European Company of the Year Competition.
Agribook also took home the prize for best product.
Six other projects were rewarded by the professional jury for their strategy, business plan and presentation among other categories.
These were Bewear (Lycée Technique du Centre), Y€S (Lycée Hubert Clement Esch), Memofox (Lycée Classique de Diekirch), Society of Sun (Lycée Technique de Bonnevoie), 4Flowers (Lycée Technique Esch) and The Brushers (Lycée Technique Agricole Ettelbrück).
