AquaBioTech Group has been chosen amongst ten success stories for a promotional campaign showcasing how Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) can help ambitious companies internationalise, innovate and grow.
Marking the Network 10th anniversary, the ‘Ready to Grow’ campaign is a celebration of exciting and promising clients across the member countries, which today add up to over sixty.
The company was chosen following a successful submission for the promotion of competition by the Maltese Consortium within the Network, constituted of Malta Enterprise, Malta Chamber of Commerce Enterprise and Industry, Malta Business Bureau and Malta Council for Science and Technology.
In essence, the company participated in more than 20 B2B matchmaking sessions since establishing contact with Enterprise Europe Network, through various company missions organised across the world. AquaBioTech Group also benefited from other services which include assistance on access to finance, mentoring on multi-annual business strategy formation of an R&D capacity.
Today, the company participates actively in EU Horizon 2020 through its strong R&D set-up composed of 15 full time employees focused entirely on technology testing, product development activities, research analytics and evaluation.
Mr. George Mantas, Business Development Manager; who today is an Enterprise Europe Network ambassador in Malta; stated that the Network’s support was crucial for the level of success which the company registered so far.
“Company investments were planned coherently thanks to Enterprise Europe Network, which served as a shoulder for us in developing an overarching business strategy which worked. We based our outreach through their networking activities which brought us in touch with the right investors to tap international tenders and expand our business internationally within a highly specialized sector”.
With 99% of its business conducted internationally in over fifty-five countries, this year, AquaBioTech Group made it to the final stage of the Germany Trade & Invest Award for International Expansion, a European competition whose winner will be announced in Warsaw next month.
