Event description
Taiwan Business Day is an annual event connecting business opportunities and entrepreneurial ecosystems between Taiwan and the Netherlands.

About this event

Taiwan Business Day (TBD) is an annual event organized by Taiwan Globalization Network (TGN) & its partners since 2012, aiming to connect business opportunities and entrepreneurial ecosystems between Taiwan and the Netherlands. The event includes presentations from relevant business leaders, as well as opportunities for stakeholders from both geographies to showcase their portfolio and network with potential partners. In the 2021 edition, the event theme is: Smart Money for Smart Startups (千里馬與伯樂 在荷蘭相遇)

The Taiwanese and Dutch economies have many similarities, as they are both open economies with a large export focus. SME’s play the main role in both economies, in the service industry, in production, and as suppliers of large corporations. General differences are that Taiwanese companies have traditionally focused on outsourced production and Dutch companies on design, trade, and services.

In recent years both Taiwan & the Netherlands have moved to top regional rankings on innovation and start-up climate, showing that both economies are going through rapid renewal processes. Following this trend, Taiwan Business Day offers opportunities for young companies and scale-ups from both countries – to match/mix and succeed.
