“It used to be no place for international students at the job fair,” said Johnny Wu, head of global relations at NTU, “we create more opportunities for them and also for Taiwan’s businesses.”
Lots of startups that participated in the event are in different industries. For example, one of the startups Ubiik is a global IoT total solution provider specializing in communication technology. Embracing an international culture, the startup has executives from France and other countries and has established a solid customer base in Japan, India, Europe, and the United States.
