Startup Stadium will also be exhibiting at Propelify this year with 12 awesome startups flying in from Taiwan for the #TaiwanRocks Tour. Meet their startups here and stop by to chat with them at Propelify.
How does Startup Stadium help entrepreneurs propel?
Taiwan Startup Stadium is a government funded startup hub based in taipei and we work with internationally-minded Taiwan startups that are looking into getting into global markets.
What sets Taiwan apart from other startup hubs in Asia or globally?
When it comes to startups, Taiwan is really a hidden gem within Asia. People don’t often think about us. They might know “Made in Taiwan” but Taiwan is really home to a lot of world-class engineering talent and it’s becoming more and more international over time thanks to programs like the Taiwan entrepreneur visa, which is really one of the best entrepreneur visas that you can find in Asia.
Tell us about the incredible Rock The World prize you’re sponsoring at Propelify.
Taiwan Startup Stadium is all about helping startups go international so with that in mind at Propelify this year we’re giving away our Rock The World Award and that means that you not only get our fabulous Rock The World trophy, you also get your very own Rock The World cat, and on top of that we’re also going to fly you to Taiwan for a week to check out the startup ecosystem here, meet our startups and our partners here in Taiwan, and also just find out how amazing this place is.
