Shark Tank Malta made its launch during Malta Enterprise’s Start-Up Festival alongside Greatt Company Limited yesterday.
Greatt and Malta Enterprise share a collective vision… On the one hand, Greatt Company Limited ensures to bring quality entertainment to our TV screens, while Malta Enterprise has served as a catalyst in the local business and start-up realm.
Shark Tank – an entrepreneurial-themed, multi-Emmy Award-winning reality show – will merge their entities to ‘bring awareness towards the business world and also expose the multi-faceted approach Malta Enterprise has towards start-ups’.
You can start tuning in to the programme on Television Malta in April 2022. As per an official statement: ‘The business-themed show is a culturally defining series and inspires a nation to dream bigger. The Sharks – tough, self-made, entrepreneurs– will start their search to invest in the best businesses and products that Malta and Gozo have to offer.’
‘The Sharks will give people from all walks of life the chance to chase the business dream and potentially secure business deals that could help them turn their ideas into a viable business. The entrepreneurs who dare to enter the Tank must try to convince the Sharks to part with their own hard-earned cash and give them the funding they desperately need to turn their dreams into realities.’
The catch? A return on the Shark’s investment and to own a piece of the next big business idea. ‘When the Sharks hear an idea worth sinking their teeth into, they’re more than ready to declare war and fight each other for a piece of it.’, they added.
Anton Attard and Mark Grech from Greatt Company Limited, the local licensed producers of Shark Tank Malta, thanked Malta Enterprise for their work in the industry and thanked them for believing in the Shark Tank format: ‘We believe that this programme will bring the necessary awareness and the ideal opportunities for many young founders that need that extra set of skills and capital injection that only the ‘sharks’ can bring to the table.’
Malta Enterprise CEO Kurt Farrugia added that ‘Shark Tank is one of our initiatives meant at creating more visibility to Malta as a start-up destination but also to provide more financing avenues to local founders.’
