Uniform Lin – Cheif Executive Officer
Specialize in Business Development, Legal advice, Patent Portfolio, Project Management.
We have a true story to share, which happened before STARTBOARD was established. There’s an Indian Ph.D. student from NCTU specializing in computer science reaching to us, doubting whether we may have relative information. Back to the time, we’re unclear when it comes to startup resources for international talents. After graduating from NCTU with a full scholarship provided, this Indian talent devoted himself to the IC industry in Taiwan for consecutive two years and departed to Australia, serving as a professor. It’s a typical brain drain, which is also the reason why we founded STARTBOARD.
In the process, we encountered several cases when international teams were at
their wits’ end. For instance, while they may be confident when it comes to their products and services, they may still be baffled with the differences between Taiwan and their motherland. Their business plan and the procedures of setting up a company may even come to a halt due to information asymmetry. Taiwan and ASEAN/India need further communication, which is not limited to the business realm but also includes cultural background, costume, geography as well as demography. The aforementioned information would be a solid base for building up a business model. Therefore, STARTBOARD is here to act as the bridge to narrow down the gap. Our team members are zealous and professional in the best sense, facilitating communication on multilateral sides so that kickstarting a business would be smooth.
