Working Spaces

Taipei City possesses comprehensive software and hardware facilities, as well as many geographical advantages. In order to create a gathering place for startups and to provide one-stop entrepreneurial services, the Taipei City Government has proactively taken inventory of usable spaces within the city and continues to consolidate central, regional, and community incubation centers or shared work spaces. The city government wishes to create an entrepreneurial exchange platform to provide open resources through publicly accessible venues and innovation hubs for entrepreneurs and to transform Taipei into a startup-friendly city.

There are currently 26 incubators at the Taipei City startup hub. The services include providing office space, comprehensive guidance, and assistance with applications. There are also 42 co-corking spaces available to entrepreneurs who require space to build their businesses. In addition, there are 12 maker's spaces where entrepreneurs can share their skills and freely exchange ideas.

The entrepreneurial space includes offices, co-working spaces, workshops, seminars, performance and exhibition halls, conference rooms, and product demonstration areas. The operation of the entrepreneurial hubs may differ according to the characteristics of the startup sector, such as for the cultural and creative, e-commerce, information service, healthcare/medicine, and digital industries.
