On Jan 14th, STRTBOARD was invited to attend Taiwan Rapid Innovation Prototyping League for Entrepreneurs (TRIPLE ) matchmaking event at National Taiwan University of Science and Technology. As a lead player in Taiwan’s startup market, TRIPLE has combined the benefits of SI/ODM, accelerators and research institutes in Taiwan with an eye to providing startup teams with designing, marketing, and researching services. Aside from solid assistance to startup teams, TRIPLE has also been making constant efforts to increase multilateral communication, which is why we got the ticket to the matchmaking event!
During the event, TRIPLE invited top-notch executives from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay) to walk us through their experiences in India and Taiwan and the current startup trends. Established in 1958, IIT Bombay has been making progress along the way, emerging as one of the top technical universities around the globe. Their constant efforts in engineering education and research are world-renowned and with that, they have both built up cooperation with peer universities and institutes as well as created a niche for innovation through their umbrella organization named Society for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (SINE).
The manager of SINE also took the floor and introduced themselves. Fixing its eyes on fostering entrepreneurship and nurturing tech startups, SINE administers a business incubator providing “scale to scale” support for tech-based startup teams and it manages to facilitate the conversion of research activity into entrepreneurial ventures.
Last but not least, there’re several startup teams from India that grabbed our attention. By and large, most of their services and products concentrate on rooting out social problems in their country with the implementation of cutting-edge technology. Take Kaaenaat for example. Bewaring the problem of traffic chaos in India, which may lead to tragic accidents from time to time, they made good use of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) to cut down on the possibility of a car crash. Also, Combat Robotics India Private Limited aims at saving more lives with robot designing.
It’s our pleasure to meet up with institutions with the same ideas at heart for creating a holistic and friendly startup ecosystem; also, getting to know more about startup market in India gives us a clearer idea regarding how to cooperate with teams from this country, which is the icing on the cake. STARTBOARD genuinely looks forward to further collaboration with Indian fellows we met in the event!
