Ep 191 Lost Episodes | Edouard Roquette

By Felicia Lin

A note from Talking Taiwan host Felicia Lin:

This lost episode of Talking Taiwan features Edouard Roquette, a member of the French Chamber of Commerce talking about entrepreneurship and Taiwan’s foreign entrepreneur community. Next week we’ll be bringing Edouard back on to find out what he’s been up to since then.

For the month of June we’ll be slowing things down by sharing lost episodes every other week, and in July we’ll be taking a break from the lost episodes. We’ve got a lot of great new content planned and we just can’t fit it all into our weekly publication schedule.


Here’s a little preview of what we talked about in this podcast episode:

  • Edouard was a finalist for the French Chamber of Commerce’s Innovation award in 2010 and 2011
  • Edouard is a member of the French Chamber of Commerce’s SME (Small and Medium Enterprises) committee
  • Edouard’s involvement with the Founder’s Club that meets monthly
  • How to raise money for a business that doesn’t involve equity
  • The different approaches that foreign entrepreneurs in Taiwan take to raising funds
  • Why Edouard has chosen to start his business in Taiwan and not China
  • The variety of ideas that come out of the Taiwan’s foreign entrepreneur community
  • Advice Edouard would give to people on the beginning of their entrepreneurial paths
  • What people should not do when starting a business
  • Why it’s important to consider who you decide to work with and accept money from
  • Local Taiwanese entrepreneurs vs. to foreign entrepreneurs
  • How Edouard learned about entrepreneurship before coming to Taiwan through a program developed jointly by the MIT Sloan Business School and the University of Cambridge called the SEEDA (South East England Development Agency) Enterprisers
  • The lack of support, programs or resources available for entrepreneurs in Taiwan
