Dutch delegation heads to Taiwan

The trade mission marks an exciting opportunity for Dutch startups and scale-ups to get a foot in the door of the Taiwanese tech market – the Asian hub for high-tech systems and materials. 

The mission will be led by Eindhoven’s Mayor John Jorritsma and is a joint effort of a number of organisations, including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, StartupDelta and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). Its main aim is to strengthen collaborations between the two countries, which already have a strong and long-standing relationship. Visit our Taiwan Desk for more details. 

An exciting programme

The delegation will attend InnoVEX, one of Asia’s leading IoT, ICT and startup conferences. The three-day event boasts keynotes, panel discussions, seminars and awards ceremonies. And delegates will enjoy a range of networking activities, including pitching opportunities and matchmaking sessions.  In fact, there will be a dedicated Holland Lounge – a centre point for the delegation to network with startups, investors and – of course – potential partners.

Application details

The mission especially needs companies active in nanotechnology, VR and AR, sustainable energy, health and MedTech, drones, 3D printing, AI, blockchain, smart mobility and quantum computing. In addition, the participating startups or scale-ups must:

  • Have an established product in the Dutch market
  • Be ready to grow internationally
  • Focus on the Asian or Taiwanese market
  • Be registered with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce (KvK)
