Our Mission: To support entrepreneurs from Taiwan and all over the world to start their business in Taiwan, and then take their products / services to the global market. Our casual meetings are on a regular basis. You are welcome to join and to pitch your ideas and discuss your pains & problems. You are welcome to pitch! It’s not complicated: Just contact one of the organizers (preferably by PM) to ensure you get a slot and enough time for your presentation. If possible, please create a short abstract which we can include in the announcements on FB and Meetup and submit it at least 3 days in advance. Technical requirements: Normally, we have access to a projector with an HDMI cable attached. If you shouldn’t have a suitable notebook or might need a special adapter/signal converter, tell us in advance, then we can make up a solution. In that case (and also to be prepared that Murphy’s Laws will strike), please prepare your slides as PowerPoint, pdf or odp (use the export or print_to_file options of your program) on a USB stick or accessible online. PLEASE NOTE: MLMs, direct/network marketing/selling, and anything similar to these are NOT welcome in our group.
