Global report manifests Malta’s relevance in digital innovation

Published global report highlights Malta’s tech position

According to the 2018 Global Startup Ecosystem Report (GSER), Malta’s tech start-up environment has revealed its significance in the FinTech, blockchain, gaming, big data, and analytics categories.

The global report entails strategic start-up, investment and policy information from more than 10,000 founders in 45 ecosystems - roping in Malta’s performance.

The report recounts that with the United Kingdom leaving the EU, Malta becomes the only “officially Anglophone” nation in the EU.

Malta is also in an ideal position for UK start-ups to relocate to, as well as companies searching for stability and a suitable point of entry into the EU market.

The report was published by Startup Genome, coupled with the Global Entrepreneurship Network. It was released during the Global Entrepreneurship Congress (GEC) that took place in Istanbul.

Moreover, Malta has been considered a dynamic focal point that may attract start-ups in their early stages. It would be exemplary for those who would like to work in an area with good weather, low operating costs and increasing government support.

The Malta Communications Authority (MCA) teamed up with Startup Genome to make this research in Malta happen. The MCA reached out to the growing startup community to gain insights from startup founders, talent and stakeholder representatives based in Malta.

The 2018 report deeply investigates key sub-sectors including: advanced manufacturing and robotics, AgTech, artificial intelligence, big data and analytics, life sciences and cybersecurity, as well as new technologies in education, health, advertising, and finance. The report then highlights which ecosystems are considered as being global leaders for each sub-sector.
