A new Malta-based app which is aimed at connecting health and fitness professionals with clients has raised €250K worth of funding from Malta Enterprise and other investors.

Sharing the news on social media, co-founder and CEO Jamie North revealed that, with three weeks to go until the first round of funding is closed, he is “absolutely delighted” with the results, going on to thank “the incredible team that has stuck by me over a real challenging six months, as well as those that have nudged us along every step of the way!”

The app, named Few, enables its users to book virtual and in-person classes with a network of over 50 industry experts in Malta, which offer a range of fitness, wellbeing and training sessions.

Founded in Malta in 2020, Few also helps the practitioners themselves to reach potential clients, providing a platform that will help to organise and market themselves, as well as guidance on how to grow their business and serve their clients.

Speaking of the investment, the CEO affirms, “we’re delighted and grateful to receive the Malta Enterprise funding, which will allow us to put into place the plans we have for the Maltese health and fitness market. The island is a beautiful place where well-being can be practised outdoors easily. Few can offer its users access to top-class wellbeing instruction, while supporting its practitioners on their journey to realising their dream of making their passion their profession.”

On the part of Malta Enterprise, CEO Kurt Farrugia believes the app “highlights the potential of Malta serving as a test base, as well as the potential of the Islands hosting startups. Our aim is to consolidate Malta’s package in particular the various schemes and incentives that Malta Enterprise constantly upgrades to ensure that the needs of startups are being attended to.”
