Instant NanoBiosensors: the Taiwanese medtech startup revolutionizing biomarker detection

Instant NanoBiosensors: the Taiwanese medtech startup revolutionizing biomarker detection

Instant NanoBiosensors, the Taiwanese medtech startup revolutionizing biomarker detection, aims to enter the European market via the RAPID-Health Accelerator program. Biomarker detection is a critical process in both life sciences research and clinical diagnosis. The existing conventional solutions such as ELISA are time-consuming, require a high amount of human effort, can only be carried out in centralized laboratory settings, and have limited sensitivity for analyte in low abundance. The Taiwanese startup Instant NanoBiosensors introduces its own unique and patented fiber-optics biosensor solution that addresses each one of these constraints: the FOPPR™ Technology (Fiber Optic Particle Plasmon Resonance), which combines optical waveguides with noble metal nanoparticles to achieve highly sensitive and reliable detection of molecules. With over 40 international patents, Instant NanoBiosensors is able to apply its proprietary FOPPR technology to create biosensor products and services that possess the following advantages: 1) Ultra-sensitivity (fg/mL) & wide linear dynamic range (5 orders) for the precise measurement of low abundance biomarker, 2) Ease-of-use portability, 3) Real-time detection (15 minutes), and 4) Low sample use. Equipped with this highly competitive technology, Instant NanoBiosensors aims to achieve significant growth in the coming years, both in the Life Sciences market and Healthcare market, with specialized solutions for research organizations, biotechnology companies, pharmaceutical companies, as well as for clinical research use. In 2020, Instant NanoBiosensors was selected from more than 500 global startups to participate in Merck’s Accelerator program, aimed at coaching startups into collaboration and partnerships with Merck. Currently, Instant NanoBiosensors is working with distributors in 14 countries for the sales of their products. Furthermore, the startup is working with large international biotech/pharma partners, supplying their FOPPR and Light-Sensing Biomarker Analyzer platform technologies in the co-development of new customized products. Concurrently, Instant Nanobiosensors is also engaged in clinical collaboration with multiple hospitals and biotech research organizations in Taiwan, US, Germany and France. During the RAPID-Health Scaleup Roadshow event that took place on May 26th, Instant NanoBiosensors presented the company’s profile, its unique technologies, as well as their fundraising plans and their aspiration for growth in Europe. As the company is aiming to scale up in the European market, at this moment Instant NanoBiosensors is open to collaboration with European partners, both for funding and for other forms of business partnerships. RAPID-Health Scaleup Roadshow 2021 The RAPID-Health Scaleup Roadshow is an event organized by Tiger Accelerator. The main goal of this event is to present and highlight outstanding medtech startups from the RAPID-Health Acceleration Program, and to draw attention to the continuous exchange of medtech/bioscience innovations between Taiwan and Europe. Attending the event was Representative Hsin-Hsin Chen from the Taipei Representative Office in the Netherlands. In her opening remarks, Representative Chen expressed her support for the collaboration of startup ecosystems between Taiwan & the Netherlands, and her encouragement for Tiger Accelerator & founder Valerie Hsu for creating such a facilitating platform. In recent years, Tiger Accelerator has identified the medtech, health, and life sciences sectors as an area rich in innovation potential for Taiwan & the Netherlands, and has created the RAPID-Health acceleration program in collaboration with ROM Utrecht Region. The program aims to coach Taiwanese medtech entrepreneurs with the ambition to grow their business in the European market, to connect with local knowledge and local expertise in the Netherlands, in order to develop feasible and effective market access strategy and fundraising plans fit for European expansion. Within the context of the RAPID-Health program, Tiger Accelerator also works closely with the Taiwan Business Association Innovation Committee. The Innovation Committee was set up in August 2020 under the supervision of David Wang, Director of Economic Division, Taipei Representative Office in the Netherlands. Chaired by Gordon Chen, the Committee includes at least 26 Taiwanese corporates active in the Netherlands, and offers coaching and investment to selected RAPID-Health alumni. Utilizing the vast corporate resources and experiences of successful Taiwanese tech companies in the Netherlands, the Committee is able to provide valuable business support to RAPID startups, helping them to most efficiently identify the optimal European market strategy. Since the project’s initiation in 2019, RAPID-Health has introduced more than 30 Taiwanese medtech startups to European investors, European business partners, research partners, and other key stakeholders. Currently the program has selected two outstanding Taiwanese startups for the intensive coaching track: Instant NanoBiosensors & Soteria Biotech. In this first edition of the Roadshow event on May 26th, Instant NanoBiosensors’ presentation also serves as a milestone in its progress along the RAPID-Health program’s track towards a future of scaling up and growth. The closing remarks of the event were provided by Jelle van der Weijde, ROM Utrecht Region Director Health/ Business Partner Health. According to van der Weijde, medtech innovations from Taiwanese startups are often highly impressive, and present very good fits for the needs for Europe and its health & life sciences sector. But for an external startup/SME, access to the European market can seem challenging at first. By entering through an open and international startup ecosystem such as that in Utrecht Region, Taiwanese startups can connect with various key local stakeholders, and establish a basis from which to enter and expand in Europe efficiently and effectively. TIger Accelerator is currently supported by Taiwan’s Small and Medium Enterprise Administration, Ministry of Economic Affairs, to establish a soft-landing bridge for startups through the Hub2Hub Program between Startup Terrace Linkou and Utrecht Region. In the near future, through the RAPID-Health initiative, Tiger Accelerator aims to continuously assist more exceptional Taiwanese startups of the same calibre as Instant Nanobiosensors to identify and pursue their own opportunities for European expansion.

What are the Space-connected entrepreneurial opportunities in Taiwan & Europe?

What are the Space-connected entrepreneurial opportunities in Taiwan & Europe?

On the 21st and 22nd of April, Tiger Accelerator hosted the ‘Taiwan-Europe Space Connection Opportunities Roadshow’. The event consisted of two segments. Firstly, on April 21, Tiger Accelerator presented the knowledge-sharing TW-EU Space Opportunities Seminar. In front of an online audience of 70+ people, experts from Taiwan and Europe shared several keynote presentations on various aspects of developing and participating in a space-connected entrepreneurship ecosystem, and the business opportunities therein. Then, throughout April 21st and 22nd, the Space-Connection Face-to-Face meetings took place. In this segment, European experts met with 11 groups of space-connected innovators from Taiwan, discussing each group’s entrepreneurial ideas and their potential for connecting with Europe’s space-sector stakeholders. Supporting Space-Connected Ecosystem in Taiwan The notion of ‘Space-connection’ is not only limited to business activities within the Space sector. ‘Space-connections’ can also be identified in any sector of industry, as any companies can potentially identify opportunities to connect to the value chain created by space technologies and space systems. For example, some possible types of space-connections are: 1)The use of Space-Systems (telecom, navigation, earth-observation etc), 2) The transfer of technologies to and from and space sector, 3) The development of space technologies and systems, and 4) The development of ground segments to operate space systems. On this theme, ESA BICs founder Bruno Naulais shared his insights in the TW-EU Space Opportunities Seminar, regarding the potential for Taiwan to further develop its own space-connected business ecosystem, and to cultivate a generation of new local space-connected startups. Specifically, the successful ESA BIC model can be a source of inspiration in Taiwan, where existing high quality Taiwanese innovation centres and incubators can incorporate a space-connected dimension. Furthermore, for mature space-connected startups and SMEs from Taiwan, it might be advantageous to pursue scaling-up opportunities in Europe, and in return, European space-connected companies might also seek to develop their business in Asia via Taiwan. A relevant example of a space-connected startup from the ESA BIC network is the French company TerraNIS. Founded in 2014, TerraNIS uses Earth Observation data in designing geoinformation products for markets such as agricultural monitoring and environmental monitoring. During the seminar, TerraNIS CEO David Hello shared an overview of how the company uses space resources in various commercial applications, and also shared the company’s positive experience in being a part of the ESA BIC space-connected ecosystem, especially regarding the helpful business and technical support TerraNIS received from the ESA BIC network. Imaginably, an equivalent network in Taiwan can be greatly beneficial for the local space-connected entrepreneurs. Space Technology Transfer Other than the direct use of space systems, another aspect of space-connection is the possibilities to use space technologies in non-space applications via technology transfer. In fact, space technologies have been used in diverse domains such as the manufacturing of crisps, the filtration/production of drinkable water, air decontamination, the production of automotives, high performance batteries and so on. On this note, Benoit Rivollet from In Extenso Innovation Croissance presented insights on the space-connected technology transfer process. On the one hand, the space industry is interested in pushing various technologies into other markets. On the other hand, various industries have existing needs that can be addressed with space-sector-originated tech solutions. An effective space-connected ecosystem, with appropriate public and private support, can mediate and connect these incentives from both sides to facilitate technology transfer. Connecting Taiwan’s design & manufacturing ecosystem with international needs As high as 75% of crowdfunded projects are delivered late - this is often due to the difficulty in finding reliable manufacturing partners, and the mismatch between design and the reality of mass production. The Taiwan Rapid Innovation Prototyping League for Entrepreneurs (TRIPLE) was established to help partners overcome these challenges. By connecting and matchmaking international entrepreneurs with the Taiwanese industrial design and manufacturing supply chain, TRIPLE can help (space-connected) companies to bring their product innovations into reality. In the seminar, Jerry Lee from TRIPLE covered the main services provided by TRIPLE. When it comes to design and manufacturing, TRIPLE’s services can link partners with both hardware and software capabilities in Taiwan. Furthermore, TRIPLE’s matchmaking platform includes a rich portfolio of providers that can support the whole process of a product’s journey, from initial design ideas to system integration, to prototyping, to mass production. For many tech startups, this can be a highly relevant channel for identifying the most fitting manufacturing resources. Building a Space ecosystem with SpaceSeed Philippe Lattes is the founder of SpaceSeed. The company is created by a team of highly experienced professionals in Europe’s space industry, and is based in Toulouse, the heart of Europe’s space sector. The aim of SpaceSeed is to facilitate and support the development of space entrepreneurship ecosystems around the world, by providing and connecting these ecosystems with various European space-connected resources, including technical, business, and financial support. During the seminar, Philippe identified the various dimensions in which SpaceSeed can support the development of the space-connected ecosystem in Taiwan. Amongst them, a possible first step may be to create a soft-landing channel for Taiwan & Europe’s startups to expand to each other’s regions, to identify potential partners, and to access new space-connected markets & resources. Introducing the TESSA Program Those interested in the TW-EU opportunities presented in the Roadshow can direct their attention to Tiger Accelerator & Space Seed’s upcoming initiative: The Taiwan-Europe Space-connected Solutions Acceleration (TESSA) Program. In the second half of 2021, the 3-month TESSA program will introduce its first group of Taiwanese space-connected companies into European space ecosystems and European markets. Interested companies can visit the TESSA information page to learn more about the program's content and the application procedures. TESSA welcomes your participation!

Taiwan-Europe Space Connection Opportunities Roadshow (2021-04-21/22)

Taiwan-Europe Space Connection Opportunities Roadshow (2021-04-21/22)

While some might imagine the Space sector as a distanced and hard-to-reach territory for businesses, this is far from the truth. In fact, the Space economy contains opportunities for innovative entrepreneurs and companies in every sector, via the key concept of ‘Space Connection’: space technologies and space systems can be indeed transferred and/or utilized in any industry. The 'Taiwan-Europe Space Connection Opportunities Roadshow' event taking place on April 21-22 will feature in-depth insights, analysis and clarifications on the existing pathways for space-connected entrepreneurs to expand their operations between Taiwan and Europe. The event has two main segments: The first segment, TW-EU Space Opportunities Seminar, features experts from both regions, presenting the space-connected opportunities available within the existing ecosystems. The second segment of the event will be the 30’ face-to-face video conference meetings between experts in space technologies and business incubation, and entrepreneurs, students and corporate companies, to discuss the possibility in Taiwan to either create a ‘space-connected’ start-up, or introduce a space technology in existing products/services, or consider the scaling-up and growth in Europe. Note: The event is at full capacity and registration has closed. Thank you for your interest!

太空經濟離我們並不遙遠. 除了火箭、衛星等太空設備的建造與營運,太空技術對地球上各項產業的應用性也是太空產業鍊中十分重要的一個層面.而對於多數的科技創業者來說,太空科技和太空系統的應用很可能便是尚未開拓的一塊市場. 若一家新創對開發太空商機有興趣,它必須做的第一步是尋找公司的太空相關性 (Space-Connection):太空能為你的公司帶來哪些價值,你又能為太空產業提供甚麼? 繼上次台荷加速器所舉辦的「台歐太空線上座談會」以後,本次 4 月 21-22 日的「台歐太空商機說明會」活動將帶各位更深入的探索太空商業領域.我們邀請到歐洲和台灣的太空產業專家,與各位分享太空經濟為各種行業帶來哪些機會,而對太空有興趣的新創公司又該如何找到自己的太空相關性,如何接觸到台歐的太空資源,如何尋找太空服務的供應者等. 本次活動包含兩個環節: 1) 台歐太空產業講座,由多位專家以主題演講的方式分享關於太空產業的重點情報. 2) 專家一對一時段,由幾位歐洲資深太空產業領袖與你的團隊單獨討論你的太空相關 IDEA.一對一時段名額限制為 12 個團隊,每團隊討論時間為 30 分鐘.在報名表單內簡單敘述你的太空 IDEA 後,將由專家與主辦方選擇最適合參與的團隊. 本次活動透過 Google Meet 線上舉行,活動開始前我們將透過 Email 與您分享會議連結. *註:本次活動語言為英文 *註2:本次活動報名人數已額滿,感謝各位踴躍報名! -- While some might imagine the Space sector as a distanced and hard-to-reach territory for businesses, this is far from the truth. In fact, the Space economy contains opportunities for innovative entrepreneurs and companies in every sector, via the key concept of ‘Space Connection’: space technologies and space systems can be indeed transferred and/or utilized in any industry. The 'Taiwan-Europe Space Connection Opportunities Roadshow' event taking place on April 21-22 will feature in-depth insights, analysis and clarifications on the existing pathways for space-connected entrepreneurs to expand their operations between Taiwan and Europe. The event has two main segments: The first segment, TW-EU Space Opportunities Seminar, features experts from both regions, presenting the space-connected opportunities available within the existing ecosystems. The second segment of the event will be the 30’ face-to-face video conference meetings between experts in space technologies and business incubation, and entrepreneurs, students and corporate companies, to discuss the possibility in Taiwan to either create a ‘space-connected’ start-up, or introduce a space technology in existing products/services, or consider the scaling-up and growth in Europe. Note: The event is at full capacity and registration has closed.
