“Taiwan is a very nice place to live, so many foreigners just love being here” said Elias Ek, CEO of Enspyre and author of How to Start a Business in Taiwan while being interviewed by Natalie Tso, the host of Taiwan Today at Radio Taiwan International (RTI). “Taiwan is a fantastic place to develop hardware products, with an unbeatable ecosystem for high-tech industries.”

RTI is one of the world’s oldest still operating radio stations, broadcasting news and programs in 13 languages to the rest of the world. It offers a wide variety of programs including Taiwan Today, which covers the latest issues, trends and people of Taiwan through interviews. RTI provides listeners a chance to become acquainted with the unique experience of Taiwan.

The interview with Elias Ek focused on reasons to start a business in Taiwan, and Taiwan’s business culture from a foreign perspective. Ek talked about reasons he published the book How to Start a Business in Taiwan, and his hope that foreign owned Taiwanese companies can cooperate with native Taiwanese companies and help promote Taiwan to the international market.

At last, Ek advised those who are considering to start their own business in Taiwan, “Just get to it! Everything is possible, don’t keep your ideas to yourself. Go out there and ask as many questions as possible, participate in the startup community and find more resources.”
