Rebooting the economy: investing in a new Taiwan
2 December 2015 | Shangri-La's Far Eastern Plaza Hotel, Taipei
Taiwan recently has faced quite a few challenges including economic stagnation, and a technology sector under attack by regional competitors. Does this really mean that Taiwan is no longer a hot market for investors? Its advocates point out that it has a chip industry that powers the tech world, a population keen to pick up the latest gadgets, a world-class talent pool breaking out to set up their own companies, and more importantly, a growing venture capital class willing to support business transformation.
Senior executives from venture funds, private equity GPs, corporate and government entities discuss investing into a new Taiwan:
- What's Taiwan's position in tech innovation across different industries? Are we getting a full picture?
- What are the recent developments in Taiwan's venture and private equity markets?
- What policies are in the pipeline to encourage innovation and investment? What should investors and industries expect from these beneficial moves?
- Will international private equity continue to invest in Taiwan?
"The conference is where public sector, LP and GP meet to unleash Taiwan potential. "

"The AVCJ Taiwan Forum 2014 provided a superb platform for industry leaders and government officials to brainstorm for the future. It inspired candid dialogues among the attendees and injected fresh insights into their minds. A fabulous event with excellent turnout!"
