Access to finance
Enterprise Europe Network offers information on ways to apply for European research funding and can also guide you in the direction of financing possibilities which exist under individual EU programmes.
The Network Service Providers offer guidance and support to SMEs through what can initially appear to be daunting funding administration procedures.
We can help you to grow your business by tracking down long-term finance from the public and private sectors. The Network helps you make sense of the hundreds of funding and finance opportunities available to your business.
Eureka is one example. Malta Enterprise can help in development projects resulting in innovative commercially usable products, processes or services. Assistance is offered to setup the project, find project partners and obtain co-financing, through national funding, for the research and development part of the project. Supported projects vary in duration, usually up to 36 months. To learn more about this, check out this weblink: http://www.eurekanetwork.org/countries/malta
We can advise you on the best ways to secure funding from sources such as crowdfunding, grants, loans and investment as well as through R&D tax credits and can also help you shape your business plan and put you in touch with the right investors, business angels, venture capitalists and banks.
EEN will point you in the direction of accessing publicly funded support from regional, national and European programmes.
