Where to Network in April – Meetups, Conferences, and More

Updated: Jan 9, 2022

Each month All Hands will share a post of events from around Taiwan. These events will span networking, professional learning, community gatherings, hiring, seminars, happy hours, and more. This will be a living list and is by no means comprehensive. If you know of a great event that should be included, please send us a message to let us know.

*Unless noted, most of these events are in English, but we have not attended all of these series before. You should look into the event if you have any language concerns.

4/2 – Echelon Roadshow Taipei 2019 – Join the best and brightest of Taiwan’s tech ecosystem at the Echelon Roadshow for an afternoon of sharing insights and making connections (exactly like a mini-Echelon). The speakers are founders themselves, who will not only tell their startup story, but dispense advice and tips to help you out on your own entrepreneurial journey. (Free)

4/2 – Megatrends Shaping the World of Work – *Sold Out* Alain Dehaze, CEO of Adecco Group, a global leader in HR and a Fortune 500 company, to share on employability and the talent imperative, to examine the role of companies and public institutions in building new workforce skills, and the main drivers of the labor market. (*Sold Out* Amcham Members NT$1,400; Non-members $2,000)

4/2 – Revamp Your Meetings with Design Sprint – Frankish Consulting will share how the Design Sprint has allowed them to differentiate from other development shops by replacing long-winded, often useless discussion with tangible, repeatable techniques towards solving problems. Join to experience a condensed version of the Design Sprint. (Hive Members NT$200; Non-members $250)

4/10 – Soapbox Sessions at the Hive – Have you got something to say? Do you have a new idea you want to share? A new start-up/app idea? Soapbox Sessions gives you the chance to show off what you do best, with an ice-cold drink as a reward after. Not only is it a good way to share your ideas, but it’s also a great way to network. (Free)

4/11 – Setting Up: Company Formation in Taiwan and Offshore – This workshop will provide an introduction to setting up a business in Taiwan and key offshore jurisdictions.
