The Malta Start-Up Residence Programme Launched

The Residency Malta Agency has today launched the Start-Up Residence Programme at the Malta Start-Up Festival.

Over the last few years, the Maltese Government has adopted an open and favourable approach towards new businesses, and this has resulted in attracting innovative start-ups to be set up in Malta. The Malta Start-up Residency Programme is an important step towards increasing Malta’s competitiveness in this area.
