About Taiwan Mafia:
In 2017 Business Weekly published a story about a group of prominent entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley that were of Taiwanese descent. The article referred to the group as 矽谷台灣幫 or Taiwan Mafia. The group of young, Taiwanese entrepreneurs had a common vision of helping Taiwan to build a thriving startup ecosystem. This vision manifested itself into existence through a collaboration of government officials, entrepreneurs, and companies to create job opportunities for ambitious Taiwanese recruits. The Taiwan Mafia network will foster a new culture of building first-class, global products and services while also serving to educate and shepherd in a new generation of Taiwanese entrepreneurs.
