The YouStartIt accelerator program is run by MITA, which is a government organisation. The 4th call deadline is on Monday the 10th of September. Applications are filled in via FS6 platform and a 2 minute video is part of the application process. Qualifying startups are asked to come to Malta (this is partially subsidised) for a bootcamp meeting, where startups are interviewed and educated about the program, introduced to 3rd party suppliers in the local ecosystem as well as some of the mentors. The final startups are selected and the 16 week program begins. During the 16 weeks you are asked to hit milestones that you have agreed to in your contract, money is distributed according to you successfully achieving your milestones.
This program is wonderful for any startup looking to get kickstarted, incorporated in Malta and involved in the Blockchain community. Deadline 10th September midnight (GMT+2) www.mih.mt
