Why Epoch School?

Why Epoch School?

Epoch School has more than 3,000 alumni who are international professionals and startup founders. They have been starting up at least 80+ companies and working with various sizes of corporations around the world.

Learning by Doing

【Young Entrepreneurs of the Future】

The students team up to start up their business plan, along which mentors and coaches provide advice, support, and resources. Boot Camp, Workshops, Demo Day, and Elevator Pitch provide the students teams with various opportunities to sharpen business sense and leadership, acquire communication and negotiation skills, and strengthen startup capabilities on the way of completing their business plans.

【International Professional Program】

Interns at Epoch Foundation every week to acquire high-quality work performance as well as sharpen leadership and industrial insight. Interns work closely with Epoch staff to plan, execute, and review all international projects under the 3 teams at the Foundation: International Industrial Liaison, Epoch School, and Garage+ (Epoch’s zero-equity incubator for deep-tech based startups). Interns are also provided with training courses and assigned with cross-team projects to advance their team work and communication capabilities.

Professional Coaches and Mentors

【Coaches and Mentors】

 They are here to support you. No fuss about messing up or doing wrong. They broaden your network and open doors to otherwise out-of-reach opportunities along the journey.

【Know Myself Workshop】

 The professional coach will help discover your talent to tackle the challenges.

【Summer Training Courses】

It is a three-week course. The senior HR managers help you stand out in a sea of applicants step by step, including writing CV and business letter, communication skills, and interview practice.


Future Builders in Action

International perspective is vital for future builders. Epoch Foundation closely allies with top-notched academic institutions like MIT, UC Berkeley, Chatham House and Evian Group, and strong networks with influential partners, serving as the liaison office to consolidate the industrial resources for Taiwan’s private sector.

The Overseas Visit connects the students with the world’s most vibrant industrial leaders and thriving startup founders. Before the visit, the students are required to study and research thoroughly and provide their questions to the host companies/organizations.
