The Foundation for the Promotion of Entrepreneurial Initiatives (FPEI) is a not-for-profit organisation set up by the Malta Business Foundation a.k.a. Malta Business Bureau (MBB) and the University of Malta (UM), with the aim of promoting and supporting entrepreneurship. FPEI encourages all forms of entrepreneurship, from high tech, high growth ventures to social enterprises.
FPEI aims to collaborate with other local and international partners to establish new initiatives and provide tools that will help promote entrepreneurship in Malta.
Mission: To promote and support entrepreneurship
FPEI believes that entrepreneurial skills are essential for the economy’s ability to grow and generate employment.
Although entrepreneurship is not limited to starting a business, FPEI believes that this is the most obvious and key example of entrepreneurship and that it’s the activity that requires the most encouragement and support. Moreover, FPEI believes that access to finance is the key barrier to entrepreneurship.
For these reasons, its first focus is on alleviating the access to funding problem and on providing support to entrepreneurs to start-up and scale-up.
