PROJECTR Taipei is coming.

We’re bringing PROJECTR to Taipei as a home for Internationally focused XR startups to launch into Asia.

As the home of two listed HMD manufacturers, Taipei is the  global tech headquarters for some of the leading computer companies driving the growth of VR. Taiwan has some of the world’s leading companies in fitness equipment, location-based experience (LBE) fabrication, mobile technology and an ambitious network of Government support agencies to support new startups.  “Taipei is fast becoming the Silicon Valley of VR”, states PROJECTR Founder, Michael Gregg. “This is why we’re bringing PROJECTR to Taipei.”

Planning for the Center is underway, with initial floor space planned to cater for up to 24 residents and six student interns from local universities. Interest in tenancy has been received from Auckland and Wellington in New Zealand plus Sydney and Melbourne, Australia, after sharing benefits and opportunities with leading VR/AR companies in those four cities.

"Taipei is fast becoming the global Silicon Valley for VR."

There’s a lot to do before we can open our doors.  There’s a full refurbishment and fit-out to undertake, plus we’re are in the process of securing a core team of partners to assist our residents with technology and support services. A team of three to run the Center needs to be hired. We are also talking to venture funds and companies to accelerate growth of residents and hope to have a system for fast-tracking investment in place before the end of 2018.

PROJECTR® Taipei will launch a local Student Internship Program to allow  undergraduate and postgraduate University students to base themselves at the Center and work with our residents to build real world skills and experience, whilst providing fresh thinking and support for the startups. We expect to be able to offer a reciprocal program with a New Zealand Center also.
