An immersion, matchmaking and deal facilitation programme for UK-based IoT startups and SMEs. Thank you for your interest in the Taiwan Startup Gateway Project. This project aims to identify eight UK-based Internet of Things (IoT) startups and SMEs in order to connect them with large, Taiwan-based technology companies for business development purposes.
The Taiwan Startup Gateway will help innovative UK technology companies leverage Taiwan’s position as a world leader in high-tech manufacturing and design. Participants will be taken through an intensive introduction to the Taiwanese ecosystem. The main focus of the programme is the establishment of valuable commercial connections (potential customers, joint venture partners and supply chain), with one-to-one meetings with relevant corporate partners. Feedback will be provided by the Startup Gateway team to improve the negotiating and partnership-building skills of cohort participants.
The partnership has the ability to engage with over 480 technology companies located in Taiwan, providing a bespoke matchmaking and immersion experience for the UK cohort. Technology companies participating in the project include FoxConn, Advantech, Zyxel, MediaTek and Phison, among many others.
