The Relocation of the Taiwan International Startup Cluster
Date: Aug. 21, 2015
With the aim to assist Taiwan startups expanding to the global market, National Development Council (NDC) and Taipei City Government previously agreed to cooperate on building an International Startup Cluster, named Taiwan Startup Stadium (TSS), in Zhongshan Soccer Stadium of Taipei Expo Park. However, considering the said venue is not for a long-term use, thus it’s not effective in terms of government budget spending; both parties have agreed to relocate the startup cluster.
Earlier this year TSS temporary office was opened at NDC’s Songjiang Building. Due to its vision and performance, TSS has received the support of local startup communities and coverage of international media. NDC and TSS will continue to provide and expand services for startups in Songjiang Building before the new location is decided.
In the planning period of the International Startup Cluster, NDC and Taipei City Government have built mutual trust and confidence. In the future, both parties will keep cooperating to accelerate the development of Taiwan startups.
