TAIPEI, Taiwan–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AI–TAITRA, the Taiwan External Trade Development Council, today announced
that InnoVEX, the startup exhibit at COMPUTEX
2017
, has attracted 244 exhibitors from 20 countries, including
Taiwan, Korea, France, China, the USA, Singapore, the Netherlands,

business incubators collaborating to build a new ecosystem for the

Gartner predicted that by 2017, 50 percent of all IoT solutions would
originate in startups less than three years old, signaling that
innovative business models are becoming the focus of R&D in the global

revolutionized ICT sectors and business models around the world. TAITRA
recognized this trend, and added the InnoVEX exhibit last year. Now, it
is one of the leading global innovation events. COMPUTEX is a platform
to match resources for innovators and startups globally. With activities
like demos, forums, keynote speeches and pitch contests, we can drive
the industry’s growth and development,” said TAITRA President & CEO
Walter Yeh.
