Come along with us to the Butterfly Kingdom with its modern cities, traditional temples, hot springs and dramatic mountainous terrain. Taipei is the political, economic, educational, and cultural center of Taiwan island and the destination for the 2018 International Council for Small Business (ICSB) Academy and Global Conference. Enjoy this beautiful city, while learning from other young entrepreneurs interested in making an impact on our world by accessing new markets, introducing new technological innovations, and pushing your entrepreneurial thinking.
The Academy will be held at the magnificent Taipei New Horizon building designed by Pritzker Architecture Prize winner, Toyo Ito. It is located within the grounds of Songshan Cultural and Creative Park, which is the “Creative Hub of Taipei.” Transformed from a former tobacco factory, it is now one of Taipei’s largest creative arts spaces with exhibition halls, art shows, and conference spaces.
The Academy is a week-long entrepreneurship education program consisting of an immersive cross-cultural and experiential boot camp followed by activities and workshops in conjunction with the ICSB World Conference. The dynamic training program includes learning modules designed take participants through the fundamental concepts of identifying entrepreneurial opportunities and creating a new venture. Participants from across the globe collaborate to conceptualize, develop and pitch business ideas developed with the UN sustainable development goals in mind to make an impact on the world.
With previous editions in Dubai, New York, Egypt, and Argentina the ICSB academy averages over 100 students per cohort from over a dozen countries with the involvement of over 2 dozen global faculty. ICSB Invites you to take part in the newest edition of the International Council of Small Business (ICSB) Academy to be held this year in Taipei, Taiwan!
