Innovation Centre gives ground to new start-ups
Our state of the art facility at Skyparks, Malta International Airport
launched on 22nd February 2013 - a multi-million dollar investment by Microsoft and its partners to support the local IT industry. The Maltese Centre is part of the global network of more than 100 MICs with a focus on innovation, entrepreneurship, and technology learning.
One of central pillars of the Microsoft Innovation Centre, the Centre strives to evangelize technology through regular training workshops, seminars and meetings on a broad range of topics such as office and business tools, programming, and server technology.
Idea exchange and collaboration especially for local technology professionals and start-ups is another core pillar. Further to this mission, the Centre hosts several events for the whole Maltese community with an emphasis on youth and team building.
The Centre strives to support all start-ups through its mentorship program with benefits such as use of latest technologies, mentorship/consultancy program, provision of IT hosting & hardware, and use of Skyparks facilities.
