Meet The Anchors | Ideas, partners & more (May 2021)
Stay connected on FB:
On the 1st Friday of every month, Anchor Taiwan invites entrepreneurs, mentors, investors and newcomers to join us for some coffee or tea!
This is our unique and cozy session to connect with you. No set agenda, but we usually kick off with a round circle introduction. Intentionally kept small, this is a rare regular gathering for local and international talent to meaningfully connect.
Curious about what we are up to, want to pick our brain on your market entry/fundraising, or want to meet other likeminded people and trade ideas? This is for you.
Important - Please read carefully.

1. This series is always full with a waitlist. Please only RSVP if you can attend and let us know if your plan changes - no shows will be recorded resulting in low priority of admission into our future events. Help us cultivate best practices for the Anchor community. :)
2. You will receive a Google calendar invite and pre-event email as a confirmation if you make the cut. Priority will be given to:
* people who fill out the RSVP form in full
* new friends who haven't been to the event
3. Please be on time! Check-in starts at 9:50am. We will take you up at 10:00am sharp. This is before the mall officially opens, and you won't be able to get up without coming with us. Late comers won't be accommodated due to the building's security restrictions.
4. The meeting point is at the side entrance of Syntrend. The side entrance is by the Starbucks near Jinshan North Road (金山北路).
