2015第二屆日本技術創業大賞台灣選拔會 / 2nd Tech Plan Grand Prix in Taiwan

廣邀台灣參賽角逐百萬創業資金

 

由日本Leave a Nest公司再次於台灣辦理「Tech Plan Grand Prix競賽」,今年第二次於台灣舉辦!參賽者將有機會免費前往日本參加決賽「Tech Plan Grand Prix in Japan」,並贏得日幣五百萬創業資金盛事!他們主要在尋找馬來西亞、新加坡、臺灣、和日本的正處於不同發展階段的項目團隊。

 

Leave a nest 於2002年由當時還在東京大學農學及生命科學系攻讀博士的丸幸弘先生創辦,鑒於社會上找不到工作的理科博士後越來越多,學歷逐漸成為進入社會的鴻溝、且拒絕理科、討厭理科的小學生也與日俱增,因此丸幸弘先生與另外15位大學時代同樣念理工科的同學共同創辦了Leave a nest,此命名意謂著理科博士後或碩士生其實可以憑藉自身所學,發揮專業,離巢高飛,同時也留下一個巢,培育未來的學子,讓科學依舊為未來世代所重視跟喜愛! 國際性的以硬體為核心的商業計畫大賽,這個叫做“科技培育計畫”(Tech Planter)的活動在日本開始舉辦,秉承著以加速在亞洲的生產力為目標,它吸引了3500個在墨田區的工廠、著名企業家和專業的工程師、專家。“科技培育計畫”正在尋找能夠用他們的熱情和產品來改善我們生活環境的人才及團隊。無論成敗,任何參加這次活動的成員如果想將他們的專案商業化都會被給予必要的支援。

 

這對於參賽選手將是一個無與倫比的好機會去結識各國的其他的參賽選手,製造商和投資人。只要在8月12日前繳交計劃書即可,快點行動吧!只要你有想法,想運用科技產物的力量改變世界、讓世界變得更好,不用擔心英文簡報與創業規劃的問題,Leave a Nest將提供專人指導! 歡迎有志的青年、團體、公司報名參加!
