Editor-in-chief Thomas Ohr praised Malta’s “small but growing startup ecosystem, with great English-speaking tech talent, governmental support, and a safe business environment.”

EU-Startups.com, a leading online publication with a focus on start-ups in Europe, described Malta as ‘a startup ecosystem to watch’ and listed 10 small local companies which were described as ‘very promising’.

Editor-in-chief Thomas Ohr praised Malta’s “small but growing startup ecosystem, with great English-speaking tech talent, governmental support, and a safe business environment.”

He said Brexit might even benefit the start-up ecosystem in Malta, “since English-speaking entrepreneurs from the UK and from abroad might favour a frictionless access to the EU market also in the future, while enjoying the benefit of affordable office space, and lower living costs than in many other EU countries.”

Naturally, there were several start-ups related to cryptocurrency and blockchain, including Changelly, a non-custodial instant cryptocurrency exchange, Play2Live, a blockchain-based streaming platform for gamers and eSports fans, and Moon Zebra, which specialises in the setup and operation of cryptocurrency ATMs.

Over in the gaming area were ProTipster, an online sports tipping platform, online lottery experience builders LottoStarlet, and Knipster, a daily fantasy football company.

Some start-ups offered elegant solutions to modern problems, including TripMedic, a multi-sided platform which connects international patients to doctors, BeeWits, a subscription-based project management software for web designers, freelancers and marketing agencies, and Fetch-It, the local version of Deliveroo.

Finally, the start-up that’s most beloved by Maltese students also got a mention. FreeHour allows students to share their timetable with friends and find mutual free lessons, and offers youthful brands in Malta a variety of effective ways to capture their target audience.
