Malta has been gaining popularity as a destination for startups and entrepreneurs. The Maltese government has actively worked to create a business-friendly environment, and several factors have contributed to the growth of startups in Malta. The ‘Start in Malta’ business is a governmental initiative aimed to supercharge the Maltese startup ecosystem for it to be the birthplace of many more startup success stories in the future.

Last week our team at Fairwinds Management has exhibited and attended the third edition of the Startup Festival in Malta. The event was a success, attended by many, and attracted many local and international businesses from various sectors including FinTech, gaming, VR/AR, Metaverse, medicinal cannabis, BioTech, MedTech and the Blue Economy.

In the journey of establishing a startup, there are numerous critical steps and activities that need to be undertaken, such as generating great ideas, fostering innovation, conducting market research, developing business plans, defining goals, mission, values, and objectives, attracting investors, securing loans, raising funds, and implementing effective marketing strategies.
