Over 350 startups show products in Computex's online exhibit
Taipei, June 1 (CNA) More than 350 startups from around the world are showcasing their products in an online exhibition starting June 1 as part of this year's virtual Computex trade show, the Taipei Computer Association (TCA) said Tuesday.
The online exhibit, InnoVEX, provides an opportunity for startup companies to show their products and services to potential investors and collaborators at a time when the ongoing pandemic has prevented in-person promotions and travel between countries, the TCA said.
Companies that are seeking innovative solutions for their businesses can access the InnoVEX website to find a wide variety of products and services provided by startups worldwide, according to the TCA.
The items exhibited include products ranging from devices that help users to better manage their cryptocurrencies to surveillance systems that use artificial intelligence to detect and analyze movements in videos, the TCA said.
In addition, InnoVEX features a product pitch contest with cash prizes totaling NT$1.1 million (US$40,000), and a virtual forum that focuses on 5G networks, cybersecurity and health care.
On June 3, a forum will be held where representatives from key venture capital firms and startup accelerators will share their business strategies and observations about how COVID-19 has changed investing and the technology sector, the TCA said.
InnoVEX was first launched in 2016 as part of the Computex technology trade show that takes place every June in Taipei.
Because of the pandemic, both Computex and InnoVEX will be held virtually for the second consecutive year. Computex began on May 31 and will run until June 30.
