Taiwan Accelerator Plus (TAcc+) International Program is an initiative by Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs. It aims to provide business support to select ambitious international startups in the Healthcare and IoT fields, opening a channel for them to enter Asian markets through Taiwan’s uniquely mature supply chain & manufacturing resources, and robust entrepreneurship ecosystem.
For European startups aiming to develop their business in Asia, or aiming to source for Asian supply chain / manufacturing partners, the TAcc+ International Program is an ideal opportunity.
The International Program consists of two sections. First, the Top 24 selected startups will be guaranteed booth space in the virtual edition of the month-long InnoVEX exhibition in June 2021. They will have ownership of a virtual display spot and access to networking events plus matching-making services.
Second, the Top 10 selected startups will have access to a one-month intensive startup bootcamp in Taipei. The package includes corporate innovation tours, strategic consultancy services focusing on expanding to the Asian markets, key supply chain linking, potential strategic partner and client matchmaking, investor introducing, local business development services and demo-pitch events, as well as one free flight ticket per team, one month of free accommodation in Taipei, and one month of free co-working space at the TAcc+ Linkou location.
Taiwan has long been a tech industry leader in Asia, especially in the semiconductor, ICT, and health sectors. With the resources available within Taiwan’s tech entrepreneurship environment, as well as the resources specifically provided by TAcc+’s corporate partners (including NVidia, Wistron, LITE-ON Technology, Hi-Clearance Inc. and more), European startups participating in the TAcc+ International Program will have a strong chance in making a successful start in their Asian expansion strategy.
