About FPEI and ZAAR
The Foundation for the Promotion of Entrepreneurial Initiatives (FPEI) was setup by the Malta Business Bureau and the University of Malta.
ZAAR is its first offering – a donation/reward-based crowdfunding platform.
We believe that great ideas should go far, and it is our mission to provide the space for that to happen.
We aim to promote and support entrepreneurship and that entrepreneurial skills are essential for the economy’s ability to grow sustainably and generate employment.
We believe in the entrepreneurial mindset and not limited to starting a business, however, that this is the most obvious example of entrepreneurship and it is the activity that requires the most encouragement and support.
We believe that access to finance is a key barrier to entrepreneurship and for this reason, our first focus is on alleviating the access to funding problem and on providing support to entrepreneurs to start-up and scale-up through the development of alternative finance.
We encourage all forms of entrepreneurship, from high tech, high growth ventures to social enterprises.
We strive towards standing by our values and to forming collaborations to offer the best space for idea creatives and supporters to contribute.
