Malta Enterprise & UM to provide integrated support for start-ups
A new collaboration between Malta Enterprise and the University of Malta will lead to the pre-application support and mentoring for Startups, in an effort to provide business newcomers with the necessary knowledge to access funding.
The Memorandum of Understanding, signed by UM Rector Professor Alfred Vella and Malta Enterprise CEO Kurt Farrugia, sets out a new framework of integrated support for start-ups. The University of Malta, through its Centre for Entrepreneurship and Business Incubation (CEBI) will provide pre-application training for start-ups applying for funding from Malta Enterprise.
Professor Russell Smith, Director of CEBI, said, “This is a milestone in support for new business ventures in Malta and we are proud to be able to offer our proven programme in collaboration with Malta Enterprise. In addition to this practical support, we will be collaborating on research-based reports which will be presented to the competent authorities within the Government of Malta, the European Commission, The European Parliament or the Council of the European Union, with the intention to support the development of National and European Policy.” Successful applicants will be able to access mentoring and support from TAKEOFF, CEBI’s incubator facility, over a one-year period post-award.
