Over the past three decades, Taiwan has played an indispensable role in the global electronics and semiconductor industry chain. There are many outstanding technology players on the island helping the world evolve continuously and developing countless electronic products that bring convenience to humanity. Now, Taiwan is fully demonstrating its advantages of "small and beautiful", providing growth nutrients for many new startups with innovative ideas and already having some small achievements -- at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that will be held in Las Vegas on January 8th, where 44 of new startups from Taiwan will showcase their innovation capabilities to visitors from all over the world.
In fact, in the new startups exhibition area of "Eureka Park" at CES 2018, a total of 32 Taiwanese new startups led by the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) made their debut. In addition to two teams winning the annual CES Innovation Award, some teams even won the favor of international investors with their outstanding performance. Soon to be taking part in CES 2019, the scale of new startups from Taiwan will not only be larger but also more adequately prepared so that CES visitors from all over the world will be deeply impressed by these potential stars of tomorrow. Led by the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), Taiwan Tech Arena (TTA) was officially open to the general public in Taiwan during the summer of 2018 and will participate in the upcoming CES 2019 with the new startups from Taiwan as well as accompany them every step of the way.
First founded in the new startups base of Taipei during the summer of 2018, Taiwan Tech Arena (TTA) has introduced accelerator resources and startup funds from all over the world by playing the key role as a public spokesperson for new startups from Taiwan.
Dr. Lewis Chen, the Manager Director of TTA operations, said that the number of new startups from Taiwan gaining access to CES 2019 will not only grow in number but also in technology maturity and talent quality. Such outstanding achievement was supported by the fact that 8 new startups from Taiwan have received the annual CES Innovation Award this year; Managing Director Dr. Lewis Chen also pointed out that "these new startups have a clearer plan for their role positioning, and are more proficient in communicating with end users and international markets. I believe that the CES visitors this time will be deeply impressed and inspired by these new startups!" The task of the TTA is to introduce international resources and establish a sound ecological environment so that new startups from Taiwan are nourished with sufficient nutrients for better growth. TTA will also be a public media platform that raises global awareness of the real power of these new startups from Taiwan and the value that they are able to bring to the global startup circle.
