LuxTag® team participated in AppWorks Accelerator in Taipei, Taiwan. AppWorks is an accelerator that helps tech startups with a focus in recent years on Blockchain and AI startups. It also provides insights on how to run a startup, find investors/partners and pitch your products efficiently. Over the years, Appworks Accelerator has become a training program that engages startups in the East and Southeast Asia region: Hong-Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia.
AppWorks Accelerator Training
The Accelerator was divided into several training sessions delivered over a period of four months starting on March, 8th 2019. LuxTag participated in the 18th batch and was among the 25 selected tech startups. LuxTag’s Faeez M Noor and Sheng Yeong attended the sessions and expand LuxTag’s network. The sessions were focused on building up and developing a startup with a focus in Taiwan as well as expanding it to other Southeast Asian countries.
Participants were also paired with mentors that were experts in their fields. However, startup representatives could also seek advice and exchange with other mentors as the accelerator was focused on helping and supporting each other to bring out the best of their business. All these sessions were aimed at preparing the participants to present during Demo Day which took place on June 5th at Taipei Marriott Hotel.
