常見問題

1. What will be the main criteria in selecting the startup companies?

The world is constantly changing, especially in the field of innovation, where unexpected new technologies and models always emerge! The curatorial team and partners for this event include several investors and experts with extensive experience in the venture capital industry. When selecting startups, the key considerations will be:

  • Whether the company’s technology or business model brings significant and scalable positive impact to the bicycle industry.
  • Whether the company’s technology or business model is investable.
  • Whether the company has reached a stage suitable for international business expansion or to receive investment from international investors.

 

Bonus: Whether there is win-win synergy between the company and industries or investors in Asia, especially in Taiwan.

We encourage startups to provide information similar to what will assist investors in making decisions during the application process. This may include the company’s past achievements, current investors, and other relevant data points.

Even if you are not selected, don’t be discouraged! You are still welcome to participate in Bike Venture’s related activities during Taipei Cycle.

Q: 什麼是挑選新創公司進入Bike Venture展區的主要衡量標準?

A: 這個世界瞬息萬變,尤其在創新的領域裡總是有出人意料的新技術和新模式!這次的策展單位以及合作夥伴有多位深具創投產業經驗的投資人與專家,挑選新創時將主要考量:

  • 公司的技術或商業模式是否為自行車產業帶來具指標性、可擴充性的正向影響力
  • 公司的技術或商業模式是否具可投資性
  • 公司是否已進入適合國際商務拓展、或者國際投資人可以投資的階段

 

加分題:公司和亞洲 – 尤其台灣的產業與投資人是否特別有雙贏的綜效。

因此,我們鼓勵新創申請時,盡量詳盡點出在募資時會幫助投資人做投資決策的資訊,例如過往已經有怎麼樣的實績、目前投資人有哪些等等。

即使沒有入選,也不要灰心!仍舊歡迎參與Taipei Cycle期間Bike Venture相關的活動,周邊仍舊會有許多業界重要的鏈結。

2. What will be the main criteria in selecting the delegation members (investors and corporates)?

We are looking for investors and corporate partners interested in innovation with strategic investments or corporate startup engagements. Relevant fields include the future of mobility, electrification, disruptive business models, digital transformation, ESG solutions, and more (please refer to “What we are looking for” above). We welcome cross-industry participation from the automotive and high tech industries. 

Previous examples with relevant investments or partnerships would help you stand out! In addition, we particularly welcome delegation members who are ecosystem-minded and community-driven.  

Q: 什麼是挑選投資人或企業代表進入創新參訪團的主要衡量標準?

A: 我們在尋找過去、現在或未來有意投資自行車產業創新,或與相關新創合作的投資人與企業,範疇包括未來運輸、電動化、顛覆性商業模式、數位轉型、ESG解決方案和其他新興科技 (詳見以上徵件重點領域),跨產業的企業夥伴 (例如來自汽車業、電子產業) 也歡迎加入。

若有過去投資或合作經驗,將大大提升您入選的機會。此外,我們尤其歡迎同樣擁抱生態圈的重要性、並願意為社群帶來價值的代表。

3. What are the costs to join the program?

Participation of the official program (e.g. Bike Venture Summit, exhibition at the Startup & Innovation Zone for startups or ecosystem hubs, Bike Venture Pitch & Social Spin, close-door industry roundtable) for the inaugural batch is sponsored by the organizers. However, apart from invited speakers and special cases, participants are responsible for their own airfare and accommodation expenses. For any customized itinerary requests or other inquiries, please contact the organizers.

Q: 參加這個計畫有額外的費用嗎?

A: 首屆入選的新創及投資人參與大會安排的官方行程,費用由主辦單位贊助 (e.g. 國際論壇、創新展區展出、Bike Venture Pitch & Social Spin、閉門產業座談等)。除了受邀講者及對產業有正面貢獻之特殊案例,入選者須自行負擔機票和住宿。若有其他客製化的行程或商務需求,可洽主辦單位。 

4. Will there be flight and hotel subsidies?

Flight and hotel subsidies are only available for invited speakers and special cases. We hope you decide to attend because you recognize the high value in the Bike Venture program, rather than solely for the provision of complimentary tickets and accommodations. The program fee for the first year has already been subsidized.

Q: 入選的團隊或投資人、企業代表會獲得機票和住宿的補助嗎?

A: 承上,除了受邀的講者和特殊案例,入選者須自行負擔機票和住宿。我們希望參與的每一個人是因為看到Bike Venture的價值而申請,並不是因為免費的機票和住宿。

Q: 有多少間新創會入選?
