Center for Innovation Taipei—Revolutionary Office Space Opens

On December 8, Mayor Ko Wen-je cut ribbons for the opening of “Center for Innovation Taipei”--a new type of office space located at the west wing of Zhongshan Soccer Stadium.
Touting the prime locality and comfortable environment of the new facility, the mayor believes the place will become a cradle of innovation and creativity as it is a magnet for youths full of fresh ideas and vitality.
According to Ko, San Francisco has dominated the world of innovation over the past two decades, being the birthplace of household names such as Uber, Apple, Facebook, Youtube, Airbnb, Telsa, and Cisco. The success can be attributed to its diverse and failure-tolerant environment.
To encourage innovation, the mayor pointed out that the city government provides one-stop service at the ground floor of the City Hall for would-be entrepreneurs seeking professional advice regarding regulations and available resources.
In addition to assistance from the government, Ko reckoned that the establishment of entrepreneurship clusters is also vital to the development of the innovative industry. Taipei currently boasts two such clusters, the Taipei Co-Space in Neihu District and the newly inaugurated the Center for Innovation Taipei at Zhongshan Soccer Stadium.
