Strategic Partnerships with Industry

At Tech.mt we understand that start-ups and small businesses need as much assistance as possible to take their business to the next level – whether it’s at concept validation, product development, launching on the market or reaching clients. Given the challenging conditions that start-ups or small businesses face, investing in consultancy or high-end expertise is an expense that only few may afford.

The main purpose of this initiative is to assist start-ups and/or students which have an innovative concept but don’t have the knowledge or the experience to move their concept forward. This initiative will ultimately provide local tech start-ups with pro-bono, unbiased feedback from an external perspective, management advice, strategic planning and marketing tactics.

Through an expression of interest issued in November 2020, Tech.mt was approached by several businesses who offered their consultancy services in various areas. These companies will be responsible for offering a predetermined number of hours of free consultancy to eligible beneficiaries, providing their expertise in but not limited to validating a digital concept, consultancy on emerging technology, market assessment and go-to-market strategies, digital strategies, e-commerce and digital marketing, and internationalisation.

This initiative is open to Maltese tech start-ups/ students with innovative business concepts. In order to be eligible as a start-up, the following criteria must be met: the company/ individual must be based in Malta; must have been established for less than 5 years; is unlisted on the Malta Stock Exchange; must not have taken over the activity of another enterprise and not been formed through a merger.
