Dear Founder,

Welcome! This application is your first step toward joining Wistron Accelerator powered by AppWorks. Admitted startups will be working closely with both CEOs of the Wistron Group and Mentors at AppWorks.

Wistron Group together with its subsidiaries and affiliated companies is an information technology leader, provides a variety of industrial products and services in communications, components and software solutions. Wistron Group owns its CVC and innovation center, which is proactively collaborating with startups and has invested in 50~60 startups in the past 10 years.

AppWorks holds the renowned 6-month free accelerator program in Taipei, Taiwan, now with a network of 414 active startups and 1,396 founders, one of the largest and strongest founder communities in the world.

We want you to know your application will be reviewed carefully by Wistron top-level executives themselves as well as the AppWorks team. From there, startups that seem most promising will be invited to come in / zoom in for an interview. Then, based on what we learn during the interviews, we will decide which teams to invite to the Wistron Accelerator #2.

A few friendly reminders: 1) keeping your answers concise is the best strategy; 2) browser crashes happen so remember to back up your answers along the way.

Good luck. We look forward to reading your story and meeting you in person / online.

Yours Truly,

The Wistron Group and Team AppWorks
