Malta: Getting Started With KPMG
Last Updated: 27 October 2014

KPMG firms all over the world have been at the forefront of supporting Tech Start Ups and this year KPMG in Malta will be actively sponsoring the StartUp Week, taking place at the Microsoft Innovation Centre at Skyparks from the 13th to the 19th October. The StartUp Week is a Google and Microsoft-backed event that enables people from different backgrounds and cultures and with varying ambitions to present ideas that are challenged and shaped during a limited time-window through support from peers and individuals who have been down the startup route.  KPMG is delighted to be associated with this initiative and will be supporting a select number of teams and ideas through its Pro-Bono initiative.  'Young people with great ideas need to be provided with a safe environment where they can present their thinking and where they are challenged and helped to take their idea forward.' said Eric Muscat a Partner with KPMG in Malta.

Through the week KPMG in Malta will also be supporting the event with a speaker, a mentor and a judge.  David Pace, a Director from KPMG's Advisory team specializing in Transactions and Restructuring, commented that "We often hear that the local startup community is held back by lack of finance, however reality points at work needed on various fronts: from the startup community improving their "investor readiness", to the development of structured conduits matching available finance to those who need it, the continued and enhanced government support, and finally a maturing pro-entrepreneurial mindset adopted by our community".  Mr. Pace will be sharing insights into the acquiring of finance for startups in Malta during a session on Tuesday 14th.
