An Innovation Island
Malta is on route to become a leading country in innovative areas, both where startups are concerned and through innovative initiatives from established companies and the government.
As it is showing in the field of blockchain, Malta has a set of unique characteristics that can marry prompt yet detailed legislation to a thriving ecosystem of stakeholders – making it the perfect innovation testbed.
While cities like Tel Aviv, London, Berlin and of course Silicon Valley are leading the race for the best innovation ecosystem, Malta’s recent past is a good indication that the seeds of a good startup ecosystem have been sown and it is now up to us, the stakeholders, to help it come into fruition.
More established companies in Malta have also refined their pitch to be able to compete internationally. Some were forced to do so, while others had leaders who had the foresight to instil an innovative culture within a growing organisation.
In the last 50 years since becoming an independent republic, Malta has continued to grow year on year, and establish itself as a hub for the IT Services, Financial Services, Remote Gaming, and Tourism sectors.
