This year the Malta Chamber of SMEs (GRTU) will be organising its annual half day event on the 10th of October.
The name of the conference is 'Let’s Evolve | Growth through Innovation' and its aim is to raise awareness among SMEs about the potential of innovative practices within their business and kick start some of these innovative practices.
Innovation is for any business, independent of whether it is just starting out, has been long in business, its size or the goods or services it deals with. Innovation is for everyone and it’s no rocket science. The conference will provide a walkthrough of possible innovative practices that can be implemented in your business both in the short and long term.
Innovation = less costs and bigger profits. Let’s explore this together.

GRTU Malta Chamber of SMEs proudly supports the ‘FastTrak’ initiative launched be The Malta Communications Authority (MCA), GRTU has been working closely with MCA on several projects such as the one launched today. This initiative is another example of the close collaboration GRTU shares with MCA.
GRTU believes that educating entrepreneurs not only helps entrepreneurs improve their competitive advantage but also allows them to give a better service to their clients. In this regard GRTU has also been working closely with the Malta College for Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST) in the creation of an MBA degree for the Small Business. The degree started last year and uptake was good. GRTU was instrumental in making the degree more practical and hands on.
GRTU acknowledges the issue there is with waste in Valletta, an issue that both GRTU and its members in the retail, catering and hospitality sector within Valletta want to see resolved. In fact, this has been flagged by businesses themselves on a number of occasions because businesses care about the capital city. They care not only because they walk in every now and again and are displeased with the waste they see on the street, but because they have their investments and means of living in Valletta. Waste left on the street gives a bad image of the capital city as a whole especially with V18 right around the corner. Such state, diminishes the attractiveness of the capital to visitors and reduces the value of any investment.
The solution to this problem is not easy, but by no means impossible. Until recently a number of solutions, some very costly, were implemented but these did not give the desired results mainly because a piecemeal approach does not work.
