3-Month Accelerator Program

At SparkLabs Taiwan, we run a 3-month accelerator program for early-stage startups that have the potential to expand globally. The program is offered twice a year with a mission to help startups succeed globally, and even more specifically, to secure the next round of funding.

Investment Preference

We have all witnessed information explosion caused by the rise of mobile devices, sensors, and other connected devices in the past decade. Along with this rapidly generated data comes even more sophisticated data analyses that lead to new insights, optimized business decisions, better initiatives, and then again, more data is generated.

We invest in startups that utilize valuable data to study customers’, both individuals and businesses, behaviors across every facet of daily life and operations. ​We are excited to understand how data is collected and analyzed by your company, and how this helps you make business decisions that lead to accelerated growth.
Taiwan is an island full of seasoned innovators, top-tier technological resources, and talent with a can-do spirit; yet, local resources are not enough to support a global vision. We believe that in order to solve the world’s most challenging problems with significant scale and sustainable impact, a global mindset must be embedded within the startup’s business model from day one - this is why we are looking for startups that aim to expand to international markets from the very beginning.

"While I have domain knowledge in marketing, I didn't know enough about operations and fundraising as a first-time founder. Founders receive tons of advice from all sorts of people around them, but I know the information and knowledge I get from SparkLabs Taiwan is pre-screened for my specific needs and of good quality. I have gained a lot of useful and critical fundraising skills from SparkLabs Taiwan."
