The Taiwan Phoenix Year in Review & Pitch Finale

The Taiwan Phoenix, Taiwan’s First Digital Health Accelerator, was launched to great fanfare in February of 2018.  With our first year rapidly coming to a close, now is a great opportunity to review the progress we have all made and give an update on what comes next.

Nearly sixty teams entered the program in March to participate in our Startup Bootcamp, and 26 of those teams progressed to Phase II of the program.

Following the Business Plan Crash Course, the number of teams was narrowed down to the Final 15 at the May 2 Pitch Event, forming the Taiwan Phoenix’s first year cohort. Several of these teams accompanied Taiwan Phoenix Staff to Boston to participate in peer mentoring at Mass Challenge, “the most startup-friendly accelerator on the planet.”

We all learned so much from MassChallenge and are looking forward to learning more and working closely with them in our future partnership.

Now we are fast approaching the grande finale of the first year of the Taiwan Phoenix Project, which takes place on September 28 at the GEC+ Taipei Global Entrepreneurship Conference. On that day, our fifteen finalists will compete in our final pitch event, vying for total prize money of NT $2.1 million, sponsored by the TUL Group  and BE Capital.

We would like to say congratulations to our winners, and thank you to all of our partners, sponsors, mentors, coaches and staff for a great and successful first year of the Taiwan Phoenix.

We look forward to seeing you at the Pitch Finale on September 28! If you would like to attend, it is important that you register here:
