Taiwan is an exciting place for startups and mobile app developers these days. Long known for hardware and manufacturing, the culturally diverse nation has made huge investments into software development and startup culture in recent years. It used to be that young startups looking to make a name for themselves had to look to bigger cities like Shanghai or San Francisco. Now, the best place to bootstrap may well be Taiwan itself — with initiatives like the Taiwan Startup Stadium creating world-class mentorship and funding opportunities.

Given all the activity and potential brewing, it’s enormously exciting for us here at Dogtown Media to be attending the Taiwan-US Investment Conference in Los Angeles, where we’ll be speaking alongside other veterans of the mobile app development industry. Subjects to be covered include pitching to international audiences, virtual reality opportunities, and how big data affects small business. Tickets and event information are available here.

We’re particularly looking forward to hearing about local-level startup success stories like 85 C Bakery Cafe (otherwise known as “the Starbucks of Taiwan”), which are sure to give invaluable insight into how tech startups can carve out market share in seemingly over-saturated industries on a broad scale. Like LA, Taiwan is an entrepreneur’s paradise — huge financial and logistical resources coupled with a progressive, tech-positive government promise to nurture more than a few tech giants in the Taipei startup scene in the next few years. We, for one, are curious about how to get on board as early as possible. Chances are we’re not the only Los Angeles iPhone app developers who feel that way.

The Taiwan-US Investment Conference offers enormous value to any mobile app developers in the tech industry with an interest in how the increasingly international tech community will evolve in years to come. Follow us on Twitter @DOGTOWNMEDIA and keep an eye on #InvestTaiwanUS to learn more.
