Taipei AutoTech and FinTech - Canadian Technology Accelerator

We are here to help you expand your operations in international markets and will continue doing so during these challenging times. Due to travel restrictions, we are currently offering our CTA programs virtually.

Are you looking for new opportunities to scale up your AutoTech or FinTech company? Taiwan is a leader in critical technologies and is a strategic entry-point to Asia. This Canadian Technology Accelerator (CTA) program focuses on helping Canadian companies in the two unique sectors, AutoTech and FinTech.

AutoTech — Taiwan’s electric vehicle (EV) supply chain cluster creates opportunities for Canadian AuoTech companies while also enabling them to leverage Taiwanese original design manufacturers (ODM) resources. Companies can benefit from the established venture capital network, part of which seeks talented research and development (R&D) capabilities.

FinTech — Financial service providers are seeking new technologies to deliver innovative services to consumers while increasing investment in IT assets. This provides opportunities for Canadian companies looking to benefit from this market.

Companies in either sector are invited to apply to this program. Many opportunities are available for companies in this region and the CTA program will help you access them to grow your company.
