Do you want to be a part of Malta’s next big business idea? The island’s best and brightest innovators and entrepreneurs are preparing to go head-to-head in a bid to gain equity investment, and you could be the one to support them.
MedFest will see eight entrepreneurs and innovators (four from Malta and four from Sicily) will face-off in a live pitching session in an attempt to win over investors and get their idea off the ground.
It’s a joint venture between Malta and Italy that aims at setting up a permanent hub to encourage the creation and strengthening of micro, small and medium enterprises, providing them with faster access to the markets and boosting their competitiveness.
MedFest is based on the extremely successful UK model, VentureFest, which began 21 years ago in Oxford and has now grown to 13 cities. The formula is proven to stimulate investment in innovation, which is why we’re bringing the concept to the Mediterranean through the Italy-Malta I-KNOW project.
Are you interested in joining MedFest as an investor?
Companies pitching at MedFest will have been through a rigorous selection process and received intensive training and business mentoring to develop a strong business plan.
If you’re keen to invest in a promising, early-stage company that has done their homework, then this is the event for you. Contact them to register your interest and find out more about the opportunity to become an invited potential investor.
