In today’s rapidly changing environment, the evolution of various industrial technologies has not only brought new economic opportunities but also formed a new wave of competitive pressures and challenges. In order to help the startups to grasp the key points to success, the entrepreneurs and the delegates of the incubator from the United States, France and Japan are invited to StartUP@Taipei Global Linkage Forum to share the flexible responses and attitudes in the face of emerging work patterns. Besides, there will also be a panel discussion which focuses on how the startups use the advantages of cross-border and cross-domain thinking to develop marketing strategies and expand international business opportunities.
Kevin Kung earned his Ph.D. in the field of biofuels and renewable energy in 2017 from MIT.
