TAIWAN ACCELERATOR (TA) is the first seed accelerator of its kind in the region. TA invests in and nurtures seed-stage startups that have the potential to become a major player in the Greater Asia market. Startups selected into the program receive seed funding (up to US$30k) followed by a 2-month intensive bootcamp (TA Camp), to guide the founders through all aspects of their businesses – product-market fit, marketing, finance, legal, branding, media relations, investor relations, fundraising, and more. TA’s biggest value-add to the startups is its network of investors, corporations, industry experts and professionals. The Program is offered twice a year, each followed by an investor roadshow in Taiwan, Singapore and Silicon Valley.

台灣創速(TA)是區內的首家種子加速器,投資並培育有潛力成為大亞洲市場領導者的種子階段初創公司。入選TA孵化計劃的初創企業獲得高達三萬美元的種子資金,為期兩個月的集訓營提供給創業者全方位的資源包括:產品市場契合、行銷、財務、法律、品牌、媒體關係、投資者關係、資金募集等。TA的最大價值是讓初創公司進入其「人脈、金脈」及「產業、專業」的國際性資源網絡。TA孵化計劃每年舉辦兩期,並在台灣、新加坡、矽谷三地進行Demo Day。
