PwC Taiwan and the Taiwan Institute of Economic Research have jointly conducted the Taiwan Startup Ecosystem Survey for five consecutive years since 2018. Our goal has been to provide a comprehensive overview of the critical participants in the startup ecosystem, including startups, investors, government and accelerators.
From 2018 to 2021, we primarily focused on startups, with thousands of data collected from our surveys to obtain an in-depth understanding of the startup ecosystem. For the 2022 survey, we included the viewpoints of investors from the venture capital and corporate venture capital to understand what they focus on when evaluating startups.
We also examined the attitudes of both startups and investors towards ESG issues, in particular whether Taiwan’s push to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 will influence or impact startups’ business strategies and investors’ investment decision-making.
An English summary of the key findings from the original Chinese survey report is available for download below. We hope you will find it informative and insightful.
