      Microsoft Innovation Center

      Launched in February 2013 in cooperation with the government of Malta and the University of Malta, the Microsoft Innovation Centre in Malta provides support for startups through its facilities, software and hardware devices. The centre offers training courses from development, to cloud, to gaming.

      While the startup program is offered to all entrepreneurs, its focus is on startups in the early stages of development. The incentives are targeted at relieving initial costs such as office space, hardware, and technology skills. The program also provides in-depth business education including accounting and marketing.

      Audience

      Community

      Microsoft Innovation Centre Malta believes that community collaboration can change the whole IT and startup ecosystem of the island. Here in Malta we host and support 3 user groups: Tech-Spark, SAMP and Mobile Malta. The MIC also provides training to developers and IT professionals.

      Startups

      A successful startup requires a healthy team and there is no better way to build a team than working in an office designed specifically for that. At MIC Malta, we’ve designed office space to encourage team work, improve communication and facilitate networking. This is available for the startups throughout the duration of the program. Further to this, graduated companies will still be able to use the space for meetings and company events.

      Startups can join the startup program catalyst that caters to aspiring entrepreneurs by providing them with valuable resources, training, networking and incentives to enable them to transform their business ideas into viable and high-growth startups.

      Students

      Students are provided with a welcoming space to explore their interests in technology and develop skills necessary for technology-related careers. Students can receive training from skilled specialists as well as a membership to DreamSpark, giving them access to free software and tools.

      The facility will also help students build portfolios and skills to prepare them for entering the work force. Education faculty can also visit the MIC to receive guidance on curriculum development and research projects.
