國發會(NDC)與美國在臺協會(AIT) 將於103年11月20 (四)16:30-18:30 舉辦一場輕鬆的交流座談，
主題訂為「創新 整合 國際接軌」(From innovation to Integration: Connecting Taiwan Entrepreneurs to Global Networks)，
除了管中閔主委及美國首席副助理國務卿Kurt Tong 會出席外,也特別邀請了Intel Capital負責亞太地區投資的總經理 Mr. Sudheer Kuppam、Microsoft 總經理 康容(Rong Kang)、矽谷天使群共同主席 鄭志凱(CK Cheng)以及阿碼科技執行長 黃耀文(Wayne Huang) 共同與會，盛況可期。
In light of the importance of innovation to economic development and job creation, countries around the world are promoting policies to attract investment and boost entrepreneurship to lead transformation to knowledge- and service-based economies. With its long history of nourishing pioneering high-technology startups, Silicon Valley is known globally as an example of building an ecosystem in which entrepreneurs and start-ups not only have access to the resources to develop their ideas, but also to commercialize them on a global scale.
Thanks to its strong educational and research foundations, well-developed links into the global supply chain, and solid manufacturing and high-technology competencies, Taiwan has great potential to develop into a world-class startup cluster. This panel with U.S. and Taiwan experts will discuss how Taiwan can strengthen its linkages with Silicon Valley and other international centers of innovation, particularly in areas such as hardware, software integration, and attracting venture investors and international knowledge workers.
