In March 2015, Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba Group, visited Taiwan at the invitation of University Alliance to deliver a keynote speech of “Turning Dreams into a Successful Business.” At his speech, Jack Ma announced his plan to set up a NT$10 billion Alibaba Entrepreneurs Fund in Taiwan.
Why Taiwan? “Taiwan has a great entrepreneurial environment so companies like TSMC and Foxconn can be nurtured. In addition, Taiwanese youngsters are well-educated, creative and diligent and these qualities are impressive to me,” Jack Ma said.
Out of a goodwill to support Taiwanese youngsters, we hope to promote Taiwanese entrepreneurs’ creativity, products and services to the world through Alibaba’s global platform!
