Finding the funds to make it all happen

George Vella George Vella


With the rapid pace of change in the local business scenario, today’s entrepreneurs are dealing with more complexity and facing new challenges when it comes to sourcing finance for their business ventures. At the same time, financing options have increased exponentially, now also including crowdfunding and angel investor options. It is for this reason that whether it is a start-up or an ongoing business concern looking at expansion, when it comes to raising capital, this is done wisely to minimise the risk of collateral damage.

At Grant Thornton we know that one size does not fit all. We also understand that financing solutions have to be tailored to individual needs. We believe that awareness of all the options available is essential when raising funds to support the growth of your business. This is why we are dedicated to working with you to customise the appropriate solution for you and your business.

Debt advisory:

Finding the right debt solution for your business can be challenging. Wading through the many different options available can be daunting. Our team of experienced business advisers are active in financial markets, can offer impartial advice and assist you to access the right funding solution.

EU Funding:

Since Malta’s accession to the EU, local businesses have been able to tap into a new source of funding. The government will shortly be launching a number of new grant schemes as part of Malta’s Structural Funds Programme (2014-2020), with €50 million being made available focusing on research and innovation, e-commerce and SME competitiveness. Through our expertise in EU funding regulations and specific programme requirements we can support interested applicants to develop their project ideas into funding proposals and apply for EU grants on their behalf. 

Private equity:

Because we have strong relationships with leading Maltese and international mid-market private equity firms, we can help you find a partner that fits your business culture. Working closely with you to understand your business goals, objectives and needs, enables us to compile your business profile to identify and pitch your business to suitable capital partners.

Capital markets:

Is going public the right strategy for you? If this answer is yes, we have the expertise to walk you through the process. We leverage our relationships to help you unleash your business growth potential, helping you understand the options available and making sure you make properly informed business, financial and tax decisions for you and your shareholders.


To grow in this challenging environment, you need high-level business, operations, accounting, systems and tax advice to enable you to achieve your goals. This is all part of Grant Thornton’s service offering.
