Originally from Australia, Tal Gory has been living in Taiwan since mid-2011. Having worked as a lawyer for several years in advocacy, social justice, and the biotechnology/pharmaceutical industries, Tal started working at Enspyre in mid to late 2011 as a business consultant. Tal feels privileged to have worked with Elias – the Swedish founder of Enspyre – and Cythia, Ben, and HyeRan – from Taiwan, Saint Lucia, and Korea respectively – on this website and the Book, “How to Start a Business in Taiwan”. Tal focused his research and writings on business structures in Taiwan, legal issues in Taiwan, the digital environment of Taiwan, and finding Taiwanese customers, amongst other topics. Through this project, Tal delved into the scientific and quirky world of internet marketing. He has also become proficient in website development. And has gained familiarity with the Taiwanese legal and business environments. But moreover, he has learnt that starting a business takes a lot of energy and passion.
One of the most valuable experiences of being involved in this project was the opportunity to speak – in depth – to countless successful foreign entrepreneurs in Taiwan; to hear their stories, setbacks, challenges, and experiences. Tal hopes that this website and the Book will at best inspire, and at least provide useful to budding entrepreneurs in Taiwan.
Tal graduated from Melbourne’s Monash University with bachelor degrees in law and science (biochemistry), and a diploma in Mandarin Chinese. Tal is also an Australian-qualified lawyer, an addict of fantasy and strategy computer games, a sports enthusiast, a student of yoga, and a lover of all things science fiction. Tal intends to live in Taiwan long-term.
