Silicon Valletta is a great networking initiative that brings like minded entrepreneurs together with events that emphasize quality over quantity.

Angelo DalliCEO, Umnai

The reason I love Silicon Valletta is because of its people. The tech scene in Malta is still relatively young and this is reflected in the people that make it up - pioneers who are amazing at what they do, and always willing to help or point you to others who can help. The sense of camaraderie and the awesome conversation at the regular SV events is an awesome bonus.

Brian AzzopardiFounder & CEO, Rawstream

We have been working with Silicon Valletta since 2015 on various initiatives focused on advancing Malta’s start-up ecosystem. Working with Silicon Valletta has been of great benefit to the Authority as this has enabled us to connect with the most talented local tech entrepreneurs, whilst giving us invaluable insight on the specific realities of digital business on the island. Ever since the inception of the MCA’s annual ZEST tech conference, Silicon Valletta have always been on the forefront to contribute and support. I am convinced that Silicon Valletta has a strong role to play in the further development of Malta’s digital economy.

Bernard AgiusMCA

A great step towards building an entrepreneurial ecosystem.
