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

Updated: Jan 2, 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.

4/1 – Meet The AnchorsOn the 1st Friday of every month, Anchor Taiwan invites entrepreneurs, mentors, investors and newcomers to join us for some coffee or tea! There’s no set agenda, but the event usually kicks off with a round circle introduction. Intentionally kept small, this is a rare regular gathering for local and international talent to meaningfully connect. This series is always full with a waitlist. Please only RSVP if you can attend and let us know if your plan changes. (Free)

4/1 – 語言玩轉之夜 A NIGHT ABROAD: 跨越國際邊界 CROSSING BORDERS In collaboration with Red Room Rendezvous, “A Night Abroad” by Tuteemi and Culpass will now be hosted every month!

(Please purchase at least NT $200 worth of food and drink at the venue. Pre-registration is required)
