Partnerships Without Borders: Silicon Valley Forum and ITRI/MOST Host Two Events Highlighting the Taiwanese Startup Scene

Silicon Valley Forum today announced two upcoming events highlighting Taiwans booming startup and entrepreneurial ecosystem, created in partnership with ITRI and Taiwans Ministry of Science and Technology. Held in Silicon Valley and San Francisco on January 14-15, 2019, the events will spotlight the innovative tech scene around the world, and the limitless possibilities of both the Taiwan tech scene and the importance of cross-border collaboration.

The events are:

Innovation Without Borders – January 15th, 2019, 5:30 – 9 pm. Innovation without Borders will open with a distinguished panel of international thought leaders working in Silicon Valley who will discuss bilateral entrepreneurship and its role in accelerating startup growth. The evening will also showcase a group of international startups from Taiwan and beyond. This event will be held at the Omni Hotel in San Francisco; tickets are available on the Innovation Without Borders event page.

Our organization is more than excited to continue our partnership with ITRI, as it matches well with a key piece of our organizations work, said Denyse Cardozo, CEO of Silicon Valley Forum. Encouraging diversity and cross-border collaboration creates an environment in which innovation can truly thrive. Silicon Valley Forum has worked with ITRI since 2017, hosting two startup bootcamps in Taipei and a previous startup pitch night in January of 2018.
