The Global Startup Ecosystem Survey 2016

Publication Date: Oct 24, 2016
The Malta Communications Authority (MCA) has partnered with Startup Genome, authors of the Global Startup Ecosystem Ranking (GSER) 2015, to feature Malta in the next edition of this international benchmarking exercise. This initiative is intended to gather data from startups in Malta about the conditions, strengths and weaknesses of the national startup ecosystem. This effort will generate invaluable insight that can help steer policy in the right direction, as well as give Malta much needed international visibility in the startup scene.

Within this context, we are encouraging all such startups to complete a fifteen minute, online survey available here​

Data collection will run until end October and the report is expected around Q1 of 2017. For the purposes of this study, tech startups are being understood as technology-driven business with a repeatable and scalable business model.

By way of background, the 2015 edition of the GSER provided a detailed insight on twenty startup ecosystems, involving more than 60 international partners in the process. The 2015 GSER attracted 150,000 unique downloads and reached 1 million leaders across the globe through citations in more than 100 articles across global media. Through this partnership, the benefits of Startup Genome’s global reputation would also reach Malta.
