In June we welcome Visiting Speaker Mohamed Geraldez to promote the entrepreneurial spirit in Malta. During his two-day program, Mr. Geraldez delivered presentations at two events co-hosted by Malta Enterprise focused on the “Entrepreneur’s Life Hacks” and “Growing and Scaling Your Company.” We organized our third key event with local organization, WomenOnIT, which aims to support women and startups in technology. Our Chargé d’Affaires Mark A. Schapiro hosted this event and Mr. Geraldez discussed “Digital Technology and the Path to Entrepreneurial Success” with our guests. While in Malta, Mr. Geraldez also delivered one-on-one mentoring sessions with aspiring and established entrepreneurs and start-ups. This program builds on our efforts to promote entrepreneurship and commercial cooperation in Malta, and supports women’s economic empowerment.
