SV @ Investor Connect
On the 9th May 2019 Silicon Valletta actively participated in “Investor Connect” – an event aimed at bringing investors closer to startups who are looking for investment.
The event was organised by Johan Zammit, one of our board members and the chair of Malta Innovation Summit, together with MIMCOL – the government’s Malta Investment Management Co. Ltd. The event also featured a presentation Anne Lebreton Wolf from ESIL – Early Stage Investing Launchpad – a EU funded initiative that stimulates that growth of business angel and crowdfunder networks across Europe.
Apart from the startup pitches, the main element of the event was a session open only to active investors. Silicon Valletta represented by Chris Kaye and Stephen Chetcuti Bonavita helped in moderating this session. Chris Kaye was also part of the event’s panel discussing the status and the challenges of the early stage investment scene in Malta.
Investors agreed to meet in the near future to discuss the setting up of a Malta Business Angel Network – this was the main outcome of the investor only session.
Silicon Valletta is looking forward to participate and to facilitate more of such events in the future.
