STEEP! Web is an online networking hub that fosters community and mentorship between Taiwanese founders, investors, and supporters. STEEP! Web will facilitate meaningful introductions and mentorships between its members at the appropriate stages of a Taiwanese company's growth.
STEEP! will host Programs to spotlight a handful of Taiwanese companies and accelerate their growth into the global market.
