In an attempt to expand the social and economic benefits of scientific research, the Ministry of Science and Technology created the “Trust-U Program”, synthesizing the energy of academia and research institutions. The goal of the plan is to accelerate the technology and market development capabilities of startup teams and help establish world-class startups or connect them to domestic enterprises in order to advance technology through merger and acquisition (M&A).
In order to help expose Taiwanese startup teams and their technologies to international venture capitals, TSI held an international venture pitch event inviting American, German, Japanese, Singaporean, and Taiwanese venture capitalists. Taiwan’s startup circle has been pushing for more international collaboration opportunities and now the government is actively working to connect local startup teams with international venture capitalists — creating more in-person networking opportunities.
