Silicon Valletta is an association set up by Malta based tech entrepreneurs that want to accelerate Malta’s attractiveness. What this means is both looking internally to understand the elements that we need to work on, as well as build bridges externally to show Malta’s strengths. The local community not only understand Malta’s staggering potential in the field of technology, but also believe that we should celebrate our successes.
The members of Silicon Valletta first and foremost believe in Malta. We are doing it because we want Malta to raise the standard bar, to strive for excellence, to have a sense of pride, and to be on the map as a serious jurisdiction. Secondly, the members also believe that by supporting each other and the ecosystem, we are collectively able to strengthen our own plans.
In 2017, we are focusing on building a foundation . This means that the how we effect change is just as important as the what change to effect. Secondly we plan to work with government to propose new legislation in the areas of talent as well as tax, and push the mindset of efficiency. Thirdly, we plan to work with partners to push the Malta brand. We have already agreed to support the Zest conference, Startup Weekend and other events outside of Malta.
