1 in every 8 business participants who took part in B2B events organised by the Maltese Consortium within the EEN (Enterprise Europe Network) managed to grow their business internationally. This emerged from impact statistics published by the Maltese Consortium within the Network, registered by ambitious Maltese entrepreneurs who made use of the services over the last three years.
Over these years, 2,500 Malta based business representatives participated in 50 seminars organised by the Network locally, contributing towards 970 policy feedback recommendation.
The Consortium was also well positioned to provide 300 advisory service to Malta-based entrepreneurs and additionally answered 500 general enquiries. The majority of the latter consisted of individual client support towards tapping EU funding, innovation business practices and access to international procurement.
Reacting to the results, Mr Lino Mintoff, who represents the Malta Chamber on the EEN consortium said “We are satisfied with the outcome of our work which generated a very positive reputation for the Network locally. We constantly push ourselves to turn activity results into outcomes which generate a positive impact on clients' businesses because ultimately that is the purpose of work”.
