Visit at SYSTEX
SYSTEX is one of Taiwan's largest system integration companies.
SYSTEX serves as the platform to link up different components of an ecosystem together.
They help look into all the investors, their objectives and what they are looking for to equally distribute them to matched startups.
This Match Event at SYSTEX was organised by ACE Singapore for the participants of the 2022 Meet Taipei Startup Festival.
It not only allowed us to pitch the Fleetnetics Automotive ERP system in front of a group of interesting businessmen but also allocated time to conduct a networking session after the pitching programme.
Our team is very honoured to have met several interesting participants at the event and exchanged contacts with them.
The Match Event networking session is only one of many great parts of the 2022 Meet Taipei Startup Festival.
Meet Taipei gave us an opportunity here to speak with potential partners up close in the hopes of starting a revolutionary collaboration.
The next stop after the Match event was in Kaohsiung.
With Taiwan's Ministry of Economic Affairs expanding an innovative project, Startup Terrace was built.
Startup Terrace supports the growth of startups in Taiwan with the objective to encourage and connect foreign investors and companies with the local supply chain and resources for a well-balanced, developed digital economy.
