In this thriving world, innovation and entrepreneurship is essential. Many of the top entrepreneurs have the ability to influence the world. Being an entrepreneur and establishing a business is what many people desire. And it’s a global phenomenon. With geographic location no longer a barrier, business is conducted in real-time. Despite being an ocean apart, Taiwan and the United States continue to have strong economic ties. Unfortunately, along with the rest of the World, the U.S. and Taiwan trade relationship has slowed amidst an economic crisis. Innovation and entrepreneurship are arguably the best answers to a crisis jarred with stagnancy. The rise and success of “start-up” ventures supported by non-traditional funding methods are becoming the new norm. With highly-educated and wealthy populations, do Taiwan and the United States have the capacity to be at the helm of an entrepreneurial revolution of sorts?
The Trans-Pacific Entrepreneurship roundtable will first examine the economic environment nowadays of both Taiwan and the U.S. respectively. Once we have full understanding of each other, we could have further discussion on how could we strengthen the ties across the pacific. Entrepreneurship isn’t only about starting a business but also about establishing a new culture on what you believe.
