Over the past few years, early stage founders from around Greater Southeast Asia (GSEA) have found their way to Taiwan. We feature them in a series of interviews held at AppWorks Accelerator, an accelerator in Taiwan that assists the growth of GSEA startups in Blockchain and AI.
There are really three reasons why founders have chosen to do this:
Talent Pool: Founders can work face-to-face with innovative engineers and the leading OEMs that have made the island nation famous for providing the supply chain in software and hardware for robust global tech companies like Foxconn, Apple, and Samsung, among others.
Founded in 2009, AppWorks is a startup community built by founders, for founders. We are committed to fostering the next generation of entrepreneurs in Greater Southeast Asia (TW+SEA) and helping them facilitate the region’s transition into the digital era. Just as mobile completely transformed the status quo, we believe nascent technologies such as AI and blockchain will eventually redefine the global paradigm. As such, whether it’s mentorship, investment, or talent, AppWorks has established a one-stop shop for ambitious founders willing to bet against the consensus and drive a change they see in the world.
