We were looking for manufacturers and strategic partners and it was only through this program that we were able to be paired with them, talk face to face with them, know their needs and find out the synergies both sides, so I would certainly recommend Startup Global Program to every serious startup that wants to really get out of the building.
The most interesting thing about the SGP program is that they have really well organized our trip. We find big value which helps us to effectively connect really quickly with people who can make decisions on the fly.
In our meetings, we’ve been meeting with the exactly the right people, so the key stakeholders, C-level executives, VPs, product managers, who are able to make the decisions and move things forward pretty quickly.
Taiwan’s manufacturing capabilities are very strong. Through this program we can be in touch with a lot of infrastructure partner, potential partner, is the key value from my point of view.
What’s gonna be very helpful for my company, as a hardware company, is building up a very strong supply chain. And you really don’t have these opportunities to meet with high-level CTOs and decision makers at these large companies.
It’s been a fantastic program with many connections with Taiwan’s top Fortune 500 global companies as well as many many different VCs.
The program could be enormously valued to any high-tech company, that wants to make partnerships with high-technology companies from Taiwan, whether be the partnerships or access to the Asian’s market.
In Startup Global Program, everything is very professional and very into detail. I believe that with Garage+, the opportunities we can achieve actually more than we could dream of.
We’ve had a number of very positive conversations, whether they lead to investments or business deals, we will see, but compared to many of the other programs we’ve been involved in, this has been excellent!
I will certainly encourage other companies thinking about moving into the Asia market. This is the great program to be part of. You get the introduction of the senior levels to all of your potential customers and partners who intend to collaborate with your technology.
It has been really helpful for us to get contact to a lot of great companies, hospitals, and also connect to some other great global medtech startups from worldwide.
The key benefit of program is actually the connections that you can make here. In terms of manufacturing R&D, they do have all the resources that you need and it can really be your lunchpad into Asia.
The whole experience was absolutely great! Garage + not only helped us with meetings, they also gave us a wonderful location where we could showcase the Quanta product and our technology during Computex 2016.
We had an amazing experience with SGP of Garage+. Taiwan manufacturers who can not only do manufacturing and supply chain, but also value-added design services and engineering. Besides, we got to pitch in front of investors on demo day and got many valuable connections there for fund-raising endeavors.
SGP not only gives lots of opportunities to meet customers and users for our product, but also system integrators who we are searching for as a partner.
Garage+ plays an invaluable role in Qnext's go-to-market in Taiwan, Asia, and globally. Participating in Garage+ far exceeded our expectations, surpassing prior incubator experiences that we had around the world, including Silicon Valley.
The SGP was a great opportunity for myBrain, and Garage+ has been very helpful. The team Is very efficient and dedicated, and they helped us discovering the Taiwanese ecosystem as well as potential partners in Taiwan. Great encounters and useful leads for the future.
Garage+ is the best place for any startup to accelerate their global reach through exceptional mentors, partners and media exposure.
