廣受外界期待、由 AppWorks (之初加速器) 主辦的 AppWorks Demo Day #23 + Wistron Demo Day #1,在今日 (12/15) 於台北熱鬧登場,有 16 支來自 AppWorks Accelerator #23、5 支來自 Wistron Accelerator #1,共 21 支新創團隊輪番登場,展現過去 3 個多月的加速成果。 11 年來每年舉辦兩次的 AppWorks Demo Day,早已是大東南亞 (東協 + 台灣) 新創圈的盛事之一。舉辦的主要目的,在於為當期 AppWorks Accelerator / Wistron Accelerator 團隊提供舞台,並促進新創社群的國際交流、投資、商務媒合,以及創造更多的可能性。受到疫情影響,本次 Demo Day 改為邀請制,進行入場人數控管,AppWorks 總共邀請了約 500 位來自創投、企業、新創以及其他相關單位的代表蒞臨,持續為大東南亞地區的創業生態系挹注能量、創造蓬勃發展。  AppWorks 自 2010 年啟動第一屆創業加速器以來,就持續積極結合各方資源,累積更大的影響力,為創業者打造最佳的協助平台。AppWorks 董事長暨合夥人林之晨指出:「AppWorks 的長期目標一直都沒有改變,我們希望協助優秀的創業者,掌握典範轉移所帶來的顛覆機會,最大化他們對台灣以及整個大東南亞區的影響。在這個階段,我們最看好三大板塊位移,也就是 ABS – AI、Blockchain、Southeast Asia。此外,在過去兩年,我們也看到 NFT 成為另一個快速崛起的典範轉移。NFT 是 Blockchain 技術中,快速成長的巨型應用,為數位資產的擁有權帶來突破性改變,並成為實現 Web3 世界的關鍵基礎。正因為 NFT 帶來如此廣泛且重要的影響力,因此,我們相信值得將它自 Blockchain 領域獨立出來看待,就好像電子商務之於 Internet 的關係。」 在結合各方資源下,本屆 Demo Day 也呈現截然不同的風貌,相較於過往,本次 Demo Day,共有三大堪稱里程碑的亮點: 1.
