Meet Taipei

Startup Radar will be going to the 2018 Meet Taipei Startup Festival on November 14th through the 17th.  The event will take place at the Taipei Expo Dome.  We will go there not just to cover the Korean startups that will be presenting there but to cover the Taipei startup ecosystem and see all the latest innovation in the startup scene.

Taiwan Startup Ecosystem

The event is supported by Business Next, the most influential tech media in Taipei and the startup community “Meet”.  Taiwan is considered to be the heart of Asia, they have easy access to  China, Japan, and other major Asian markets.  They are attracting a lot of tech talent into Taiwan, one of the main reasons being that the cost of standard living is half that of the United States.  As far as foreign talent immigration regulations the Taiwanese government is very supportive.  They have a strong manufacturing network home to tech giants such as Asus, Acer, HTC, and Foxconn.

Why Korean Startups Should go to Meet Taipei

2018 Meet TaipeiThis will be a truly global event.  It will attract more than 100 global teams from over 14 countries.  The event will connect founders and investors in over 300 speed-dating meetings.  Meet Taipei will also bring in keynote speakers who are experts in various companies such as Microsoft.   Korean startups will also be able to make partnerships with over 300 local startups/big companies in Taiwan.  It will be important for Korean startups to have a partner in Taiwan for future global expansion.  There will also be Demo Pitch events in front of over 20 investors.  Contact them now to see if your startup qualifies for a free booth at the conference.  Our recommendation is to make sure to attend all the afterparties as Meet Taipai does a great job of bringing in great local indie performers and DJs.  Here will be another great opportunity to network and form partnerships.
