Our focus is on early stage innovative startups typically working on a proof-of-concept or market validated idea. Since launch of the YouStartIT programme in 2016 we accelerated a total of 27 startup projects covering technologies as diverse as Blockchain, Augmented Reality, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Apps and e-Commerce solutions. All completely equity-free. Our aim is to take our startups to their next stage of funding and growth, typically business angel investment, or grants offered by Malta Enterprise or the Malta Council for Science and Technology. 60% of our startups can expect to continue working on their project one year on, while nearly 40% receive further funding within that year. Our top performers are the ones who have already made it to their next round of funding.
