ACCELERATORS & PARTNERS:
TTA offers a direct pipeline to international resources, hosting a number of immersive accelerator programs dedicated to bringing growth-stage companies abroad to Silicon Valley, Korea, Japan, France, and more. In addition to MoST’s self-run programs TITAN and TIEC, TTA also hosts SOSV’s Mobile-Only Accelerator, MOX, and the Sparklabs Taipei accelerator program. Teams joining these respective programs can expect to gain invaluable guidance from international mentor networks, achieve accelerated growth, and receive investment in preparation for entering the global market. Success stories and milestones are recorded and published through TTA’s international media network. In addition, TTA regularly brings teams to international conventions such as CES, RISE, and more, providing valuable exhibition space and meeting arrangements.
TTA is also home to BE Accelerator, a Taiwan biomedical accelerator investing and assisting teams on medical devices and healthcare verticals. IAPS (the Center of Industry Accelerator and Patent Strategy) and TSI (The Taiwan Startup Institute) also benefit from operating out of Taiwan Tech Arena. These university-based accelerators provide important technology resources for local and foreign teams in areas such as artificial intelligence, IOT, semiconductors, and robotics.
Besides sponsoring TTA’s accelerators, the Ministry of Science & Technology also collaborates with foreign entities & organizations in the United States, Canada, France, Israel, and Holland, to increase deal flow and provide growth opportunities for TTA programs. MoST and TTA welcome public and private counterparts, corporate partners, investors, ecosystem builders, and service providers, in joining this growing community network.
Taiwan Tech Arena was launched by the Ministry of Science & Technology in September 2018. TTA’s operation, marketing, and event curation is managed by the Industrial Technology & Research Institute (ITRI) with the help of FutureWard. Established in 1973, ITRI is Taiwan’s first technology incubator, operating today as a non-profit institution connecting R&D facilities and technology resources around the globe. FutureWard was established in 2014, and is a privately-run startup committed to connecting global startup resources through management of its coworking spaces and its communities.
