Taiwan Business Day 2016


Do you own or manage an innovative start-up, small or medium sized company, and are you considering opportunities abroad? Meet your potential business partners and support organizations for the Far East – during an intensive afternoon seminar.

Why Taiwan? 

Taiwan is world leader in many innovative technologies and its companies continue to stay on top of new developments. Taiwan and The Netherlands have a lot in common, with a long trading history going back over 400 years.  Both are internationally renowned as trading nations, and the business gateway to their regions. Taiwan has a western style legal system and has well developed support system for innovative companies also from abroad. The ‘Maker infrastructure; from Fablab to Foundry’ makes Taiwan a great place to go for technology and production partners. Ánd Taiwan is also growing as a soft-landing hub to access markets like Japan and China.


Taiwan Business Day is organised together with EBU and it’s Taiwanese counterpart IDIPC. The main objective of #TBD16 is for you to meet Taiwanese organizations, entrepreneurs and support organisations. The program includes a seminar to help you understand the Taiwanese opportunities and help you with your business expansion strategy. Taiwan Business Day ends with a networking event to expand your international business network.
