Many entrepreneurs and organisations in Malta struggle to find the service providers they need to support their business journey. FPEI Enterprise can help you bridge that gap.

Navigating the start-up space can be tricky and confusing, whether you are a seasoned entrepreneur or a fledgling business. Building a network of trusted and reliable contacts takes time and persistence, yet in the interim you still require professional assistance such as legal, financial, education, recruitment and digital services and co-working spaces to help you grow. But how can an entrepreneur quickly and confidently find the right business or service provider for their needs, and, likewise, how can Malta’s businesses and service providers connect with entrepreneurs?

The Foundation for the Promotion of Entrepreneurial Initiatives (FPEI) recognises the critical importance of bridging this gap between entrepreneurs and the businesses, entities and collaborators they need to build success. Our latest initiative, the FPEI Enterprise Membership Club, serves as that vital business bridge for all organisations and individuals that are passionate about entrepreneurship in Malta.

Channelling our knowledge and experience of the challenges that local entrepreneurs face, we have built FPEI Enterprise with your needs in mind, to create a range of valuable benefits for members.

We understand the time and effort it takes to curate a network of contacts and collaborators, so our member networking activities will help you to fast-track this process among like-minded professionals and business owners. To promote your bespoke services to other members – and give you easy access to the assistance and services you need – each FPEI Enterprise Membership Directory listing gives you space for your company information, services, resources, logo and contact details.   

In today’s fast-paced and dynamic business landscape, FPEI knows that ongoing training is now an essential aspect of entrepreneurial success, in skills and techniques such as business planning, marketing strategies, financial management, pitching and negotiation. As a member, you can enhance your knowledge and abilities through discounted rates or complimentary tickets to expert-led workshops and training sessions on these topics and even promote your own business educational sessions.

Mentorship programmes and an FPEI blog meanwhile enable you to share your experience and expertise with other individuals. And we have made staying a step ahead of the industry simpler – regardless of your sector – with industry-specific knowledge, trends and market insights delivered through FPEI Enterprise newsletters.

Sponsorship and funding opportunities also abound. FPEI’s initiative, Zaar, is Malta’s only reward- and donation-based crowdfunding platform and the island’s go-to for advice and assistance on making the most of this increasingly popular form of alternative finance. If you’ve ever considered crowdfunding to secure financial support for your projects, FPEI Enterprise membership could well open valuable doors to local and international funding opportunities for your business.

You could even support your organisation’s CSR efforts via membership. The online directory offers companies the chance to Matchfund, through which you match the amount a voluntary organisation raises through crowdfunding. While making a real difference, this also helps you to build stronger and more meaningful relationships with both clients and contacts.

Plus, it’s easy and affordable to join FPEI Enterprise, with an online application and an annual payment of just €175 (excluding VAT).

At FPEI, we believe in the growth potential of the entrepreneurial and start-up industry in Malta and in founders, pioneers, entrepreneurs and innovators just like you. How can FPEI Enterprise help you take your next step towards entrepreneurial success?
