Magic Spectrum, which was created by Digital Magics, a technology-focused incubator with offices around Italy, will accept the first proposals for financing and technical support from start-ups until 21 January 2022.

Magic Spectrum, whose partners include Cisco, Inwit, Irdeos, and Unipol Tech, will seek to accelerate the development of businesses by utilising 5G or IoT to develop B2B and B2C products in the following areas: smart home and building, smart mobility, smart factory, retail and logistics, Agrifood, health and wellness. From this inaugural call for submissions, up to 15 start-ups will be chosen to participate in the programme.

“Melita’s involvement in Magic Spectrum, which seeks to become Europe’s premier accelerator of 5G and IoT enterprises, underlines our commitment to developing the greatest technologies and connections not just in Malta but across Europe,” stated Harald Roesch, Chief Executive of Melita Limited. We have already developed a strong foothold in Italy and Germany with melita.io, our Internet of Things connection service. Melita’s reputation as an enabler of innovative solutions continues to expand, owing to the fact that we also have statewide 5G, NB-IoT, and LoRaWan networks in Malta.”
