The Maltese Business Story


The Maltese Business Story is yet another unique project, created by the SME Helpdesk within the Malta Employers’ Association, which aims to assist mainly, start-ups, micros and SMEs.

It takes the form of a hypothetical business story, written in the Maltese language, including hyperlinks to 91 MEA TV programmes. Each TV programme includes expert advice, discussions and other visual content which will give the basic tools to a business owner to tackle certain situations in the day-to-day running of the business.

The TV programmes hyperlinked within this document feature a total of 300 business experts and provide 2,300 minutes of entrepreneurial material.

A user can easily locate the part of the story which is of interest to him/her. However, we do advise potential business owners to go through the short story at least once since it provides a chronological order of the tasks required to open a new business.

This business story is aimed to alert entrepreneurs to be well prepared, and knowledgeable about various situations, which one could encounter during a business venture.

By identifying specific circumstances, giving advice and guidance accordingly and sharing best practices, this initiative is meant to help SMEs to continue investing in entrepreneurial and managerial skills.
