The COVID-19 pandemic has affected most businesses yet some were harder hit than others. ReStart has the objective to support those businesses which due to the effect of the pandemic had to terminate operations, by helping them access advisory services and providing a kick-start grant to help them restart operations.
Small and Medium-sized Enterprises who had to close their business or had a significant downturn in activity, may be supported through this measure with full reimbursement of costs capped at five thousand Euro (€5,000) for advisory to restart their business activity or venture into a new business. Furthermore, Malta Enterprise will support businesses that have made use of restart advisory with a further grant of up to five thousand Euro (€5,000) to facilitate the restart of a business activity.
