Have you considered starting your own business but is not really sure what should be the first step?
Not sure if Taiwan is an entrepreneur-friendly environment?
Want to know the key points for a Taiwan start-up?
Want to meet others in the same situation?
Then this event is for you.

Starting a company is never easy and doing it in a foreign country is even harder. Taiwan has many advantages over alternatives like Thailand, China or Hong Kong. For example, unlikely many other countries, in Taiwan a foreigner can own 100% of a company. Taiwan also has proper rule of law and most entrepreneurs do not run into people asking for bribes or hand-outs.
Based on 13 years as an entrepreneur in Taiwan, Swedish national Elias Ek will share his experiences and his knowledge regarding rules, laws and culture around starting a company in Taiwan.

Topics include:

– Picking a business entity and registering in Taiwan
– Work permit and ARC issues for entrepreneurs
– Hiring, managing and paying employees
– Employee insurance issues
– Money, banking and invoices
– Introduction to Taiwan taxes
– Financing your business in Taiwan
– Offices, business centers or co-workspaces
– Trademarks and Patents
– Government support
