Qualcomm has a long history of supporting global startup ecosystems. Recently, Qualcomm launched startup programs in various regions-including the Qualcomm Innovate in Taiwan Challenge (QITC), the Qualcomm Design in India Challenge (QDIC) and the Qualcomm Vietnam Innovation Challenge (QVIC) to accelerate innovation in the global startup ecosystem. The Qualcomm® Innovate in Taiwan Challenge (QITC) 2021 is a continuation of an initiative by Qualcomm, run by its affiliate Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. (QTI), that was started in 2019 to support the development of Taiwan’s ICT ecosystem by identifying and nurturing innovative, new small and medium-sized companies and products. This Qualcomm initiative is a collaboration with Taiwan’s Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and Taiwan Tech Arena (TTA) to support the growth of Taiwanese startups in areas such as 5G, cellular connected IoT, machine learning, smart cities, and multimedia with our mobile platforms and technologies. This year, 10 shortlists of QITC 2021 and 6 startups from QDIC and QVIC will participate in Meet Taipei 2021 online to expand cross-region exchanges among startups in Asia and create links to international markets.
