The Maltese DIFME partners are organizing another thematic event on Wednesday 3rd March 2021 discussing Alternative Finance for Entrepreneurs.  Alternative finance offers new opportunities for those who are in need of capital and may provide microentrepreneurs with a more flexible and responsive option to funding since providers may better align to microentrepreneur needs.

This session will provide a deeper understanding of alternative finance opportunities available, their adoption in EU regulation and highlight what finance investors look for in a business finance request. The panel of speakers at the event include:

  • Ronald Kleverlaan expert advisor on crowdfinancing for the European Commission, advisory board member of several crowdfunding initiatives, Founder of CrowdfundingHub and Director of the European Centre for Alternative Finance at Utrecht University.
  • Matthew Caruana who since   2016, he has driven ZAAR, Malta’s leading crowdfunding platform, and grown it into a nationally-recognised brand.
  • Daniel Debono who as Head of Brussels Operations for MBB and EU Affairs Manager, has followed the policy and legislative issues of interest to the business community.
  • Jack Foley, an economist and trainer specialising in finance, business writing and management strategy. Jack has designed and implemented national training initiatives in Ireland and led joint venture projects with a major international bank.
