Taipei Story—Spotlighting Outstanding Taipei Entrepreneurs

To introduce Taipei’s vibrant entrepreneurial scene to the world, the Department of Economic Development (DOED) has launched the “Taipei Story” program.
Stories of 20 startups chosen from a total of 883 subsidized local companies will be featured on the Chinese website “Subsidies & Incentives for Taipei Industry” (www.industry-incentive.taipei) starting November 10.
Highlights of the stories include “Planet Studio Popcorn”, which has made its name in the Southeast Asian market and is picking up speed to expand its international profile; “LumIO Labs,” a manufacturer of wearables used to monitor health conditions employing vital signs detection technologies; and “One-Forty,” an organization committed to migrant worker issues in Taiwan and seeking to empower the foreign laborers with skills and help them gain self-awareness.
According to DOED, Taiwan ranked 6 out of 130 countries in the 2016 Global Entrepreneurship Index released by the Global Entrepreneurship and Development Institute. As the capital of the island, Taipei has been endeavoring to provide incentives for entrepreneurship.
To time with the 2016 Startup@Taipei Week taking place between November 15 and 19, the city government will hold the Taipei Story Entrepreneur Forum on November 16 and set up booth at the Meet Taipei carnival at Expo Dome from November 17 through 19. Visitors can learn more about the City’s resources in nurturing innovation.
