Business Angel Investment Program
Through this Program, the National Development Fund (hereafter referred to as “the NDF”) aims to establish a sound startup investment mechanism to improve the angel investment environment in Taiwan; NDF, angel investors, domestic and foreign investment institutions will co-invest in startups and also provide startups with initial and subsequent operating capital; the investment experience of angel investors and investment institutions will also be used to provide the invested businesses with follow up guidance and advice and network linkages. The main objective of this Program is to support relatively high-risk startups, rather than having financial profit as the sole consideration.
The NDF will allocate NT$2 billion for handling this Program
