A note from Talking Taiwan host Felicia Lin:

Learn all about Taiwan’s growing startup community and all of the resources available for budding entrepreneurs in this episode of the Talking Taiwan podcast. If you want to know how to start a business in Taiwan, there’s a book written about it, and not surprisingly, it’s called How to Start a Business in Taiwan. The author of that book, Elias Ek, the CEO and co-founder of Enspyre spoke with me about all of these topics, and more, including the annual Dragons’ Chamber pitch contest, which will be taking place on November 18th of this year. This episode is a must-listen, specifically for non-Taiwanese nationals or anyone who’s ever thought about, is about to embark on, or currently in the midst of starting a business in Taiwan.
