Last week, Taiwan Startup Stadium welcomed more than two dozen Taiwan-based startups at ROCK the MIC, a fast-paced event during which teams presented their products for just 2 minutes for the chance to join TSS at RISE Conference in Hong Kong. A total of 29 teams pitched, including 3 teams remotely presenting via video, and we got to see some amazing products built right here in Taiwan. Each of the winning team won:

And the winners are...

It was tough choosing from so many fantastic teams, and we wish we could take them all to RISE to show off how awesome Taiwan startups really are! However, you can still check out this Slideshare to find out more about all of the teams presenting, including our 4 winners!

PS: If you're headed to RISE Conference next week, be sure to stop by the Taiwan Startup Stadium booth and say hello! We'll be live tweeting throughout the event, so don't forget to follow us @startup_stadium!


Taiwan Startup Stadium: The First Two Months

It's hard to believe that TSS has only been publicly launched for two months, given all that has been happening! Here's a glimpse at what's been going on since May, as well as some more background on Taiwan Startup Stadium's long-term mission and programming objectives!

 

In the future, you can expect to see more updates about Taiwan Startup Stadium's progress as our programs for Taiwan startups expand and we get nearer to our official grand opening at Zhongshan Soccer Stadium. Stay tuned!
