Almost 120 participants mostly start-ups and youths looking to start their own business took an active part in the Startup Café organized by Malta Enterprise.
Besides hearing out professionals and academics in the field who shared their experiences, participants had the opportunity to ask their own questions and getting appropriate guidance during a number of panel discussions as well as networking sessions with the panellists, with whom they could discuss their ideas, challenges and opportunities.
