iiiNNO is fortunate to be part of the growth of many startup ecosystems in Asia.
Why joining the iiiNNO community?
Let’s hear from what our members have to say about what so special about the iiiNNO community and why they all join. iiiNNO is so grateful to receive a gift from members of our community with the surprise video our entrepreneurs in our program made on their own. Big appreciation to Rayan from Meitefusi who gathered the members to embark on the journey of making this video.
History of iiiNNO journey to community building
Where community initiative has started (2011)
In 2011, the co-founder of iiiNNO David, without knowing much about the startup work scene, embarked on the fantastic journey of startup ecosystem building and co-organizing the first Startup Weekend event Taiwan.

The birth of iiiNNO
In 2016, iiiNNO officially launched in addressing the need of early-stage single founder or startup companies to validate ideas and search for the first customer. Soon we found ourselves in the space of “pre-incubation” with the work we had done, and most customers are people with ideas or school projects hoping to turn into something sustainable or meaningful.
To further help people who have yet decide to devote to the business entirely, but have the burning desire to investigate further the big ideas while facing challenges in finding resources like financial, mentorship, or space, we step in. In 2017 we officially launched a “Taiwan Puzzle-Up Startup Ecosystem” project. We group the early-stage resource and entrepreneur into a messenger chat group and co-create a Taiwan startup ecosystem map.
