One of Taiwan's leading ecosystem builders, Taiwan Startup Stadium (TSS), will be holding a regional conference with a focus on helping startups expand regionally.
Dubbed #AsiaRocks, the three-day event and conference will be held in Taipei from the 12th to 14th of November.
One feature that makes #AsiaRocks stand out is the nature of the event, where TSS will be bringing together an international congregation of exhibitors providing cross-border resources for companies to expand overseas.
This three-day event will offer exhibitions, keynote speeches, panel discussions and networking opportunities to provide unique "cross-border, market-entry" content for the participants.
#AsiaRocks will also provide access to key players and resources from Asian markets, opportunities to deep dive into the different startup ecosystems, a closer look into investment trends, "government subsidy programmes", and soft-landing services of these regions.
#AsiaRocks exhibitors and speakers include the following:
Taiwan: Taiwan Startup Stadium, Taiwan Tech Arena, Startup Terrace, MOX, AppWorks and DIT Startup
Hong Kong: The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, City University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation, and Hong Kong Cyberport
Japan: The Japan External Trade Organization, Fukuoka Growth Next, Fukuoka City GSC, EDGEof, Invest Tokyo, ProtoStar and FINOLAB
New Zealand: Zino Innovation Hub and New Zealand Trade and Enterprise
Thailand: RISE and The National Innovation Agency & Startup Thailand
Indonesia: SEA Bridge
Korea: Seoul Startup Hub
Australia: Startup Bootcamp
"Most countries in Asia, by themselves, face the same issues in building up their startup ecosystem including market size, capital and lack of talent. The Silo approach does not work. United by a common spirit, language and culture of entrepreneurship, #AsiaRocks is the first of many events and programs designed to build and operate a stronger Asia startup ecosystem," said Leroy Yau, Co-founder and CEO of Taiwan Startup Stadium.
