Taiwan Accelerator(TA) (http://www.accelerator.tw/index_en.html?lang=en ) is the first seed accelerator in Taiwan, which is one of the "Four Asian Tigers" alongside Hong Kong, South Korea and Singapore. Taiwan is also the gate to China, Japan, South Korea and other Asian countries.
TA is working to nurture the region's undiscovered innovators in a rigorous and unique incubator. The program is shedding light on this region that is proving to be rich with talent, but, until now, light on seed investors.
1.Seed capital: Plan A – USD30,000 for 10% stake; Plan B – USD18,000 for 6% stake. Startups select their own plan.
2.Dual Mentors: There are more than 300 mentors available at TA, including successful entrepreneurs, industry experts, CFOs, and IROs. Together they provide the highest level of dual-track business and financial counseling.
3.Demo Day: Demo Day is held within two weeks of the end of TA Camp, founders provide briefs and demos to angel investors, VCs, and corporate investors, both domestic and abroad. After the Demo Day, we match interested investors with the startups and arrange follow-up meetings, allowing them to finish the angel round financing in the shortest possible time.
4.Global Connection: Through TA's management team, mentors, and its global partner network, we link together the Americas, Europe, Asia and other markets around the world. This provides startups with access to essential resources relating to market intelligence, product testing and even sales channels.
8 startups were selected for TA #1 cohort and received our investment. In April, Demo Days will be held in Taipei, Silicon Valley and New York. TA #2 is now open for application.
