Textile & Fashion Industry: Innovation Salon and Open Call for Investors

紡織產業國際永續創新沙龍、工作坊與投資人召集

The textile industry is undergoing a remarkable evolution, spurred by technological advancements, innovative business models, and a growing emphasis on sustainability. In Taiwan, where technology and innovation converge, is the textile sector leveraging tech and capital to drive transformative change? In this context, a pioneering event is set to unfold, aiming to catalyze collaboration among key stakeholders – from technology firms to textile manufacturers, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists. This event serves as a platform to explore the intersection of technology, corporate innovation, and sustainable fashion, envisioning a future where Taiwan provides a platform in revolutionizing the textile industry.

We aim to cover topics such as:

  • What possibilities emerge when technology, startup solutions, and venture capital / CVC integrate into the textile industry? 
  • What role can Taiwan play beyond manufacturing for the global sportswear and fashion industries?
  • How can overseas partners collaborate with stakeholders in Taiwan to develop sustainable solutions, and vice versa?

Join us for an innovation program bringing together investors, corporate leaders, brand and media executives, entrepreneurs, and relevant officials to explore, connect and co-create.

由於對永續發展的日益重視、疫後成本與供應鏈韌性的種種考量,紡織產業正經歷前所未有的變革。以中小企業為主軸的台灣紡織產業鏈,對內面臨接班轉型的考驗,對外面對種種新增的法規與成本。我們相信此時此刻,跨產業的開創性活動與平台,有助於探索科技、企業創新和永續時尚的交集,展望一個台灣引領紡織行業革新的未來。

Anchor Asia (Anchor Taiwan) 延續多年創新生態圈國際鏈結之累積,將於2024年5月17日和新北市政府的Fashion for all活動合作,共同舉辦Weave Venture紡織產業國際永續創新沙龍、工作坊與投資人召集,當天包含企業參訪、創新案例分享、投資人講座、品牌與市場策略工作坊、新創展示等,相關領域包括紡織產業上下游創新的技術和商業模式 (e.g. 設計、生產、製造、物流、零售、回收、運動科技、永續法規、時尚平台),我們將探討:

  • 紡織產業加入科技、新創與企業創投,可以帶來什麼重要的永續解方?
  • 對運動機能服飾與時尚產業都舉足輕重的台灣,能扮演什麼代工以外的關鍵角色?
  • 透過跨境合作,相關領域的投資人、企業與創業家可以促成什麼新的可能?

 

透過一場跨領域的開創性活動,邀請投資人、企業主、新創代表、品牌與媒體高層等產官學研相關人士,共同探索紡織產業的未來。結合紡織 x 科技 x 永續 x 資本的特殊盛會,期待您的參與!

▩ Delegation Visit and Startup Demo

Founded in 1974 with operations in Taiwan, China, Cambodia and Mexico, Sabrina Fashion Industrial Corp. has been one of the largest producers and innovators of top-quality performance apparel. Its clients include globally recognized companies, with products ranging from cycling apparel, training apparel, protective base layer, tennis clothing, golf garments, to specialized outfits for Olympic athletes.

Sabrina’s global headquarters doesn’t resemble a typical garment company. With its innovative and open-space vibe, it might explain why over the years it has been one of the most active players in the strategic investment landscape related to the textile industry, engaging with numerous startups. During this VIP delegation visit, we will meet key executives, learn about Sabrina’s strategic roadmap, and engage with brands as well as startups incubated or invested in by this 50-year-old hidden champion from Taiwan.

Sabrina的總部不像一個典型的服裝公司,一走進位於新店的總部,你將可以感受到創新和開放的氛圍,這或許解釋了為何多年來它一直是紡織行業裡最活躍的創新企業之一,不只積極與上下游相關公司互動、投資基金與新創,也在公司主要生產地柬埔寨設立了新創孵化器,回饋當地的創新生態圈。在這次的VIP代表團參訪中,我們將會與主要高層會面,了解Sabrina的策略佈局,並與這家台灣50年隱形冠軍所孵化及投資的品牌和新創交流互動。
