Synergy Correlation

The NCKU Campus Innovation Teams 2023 Annual Presentation Demo Day took place today at the NCKU International Conference Hall, showcasing the achievements of the innovation teams guided by the NCKU Center for Industry-Academia Collaboration and Innovation over the past year. This year, the NCKU Dream Project had nearly 60 campus teams submit applications, and after project guidance and review, 40 teams stood out, receiving a total subsidy of nearly NT$2 million. The Demo Day continued the tradition of the NCKU Dream Project, hosting a 3-minute elevator pitch competition, allowing teams to quickly showcase themselves and their products with concise and precise pitches. Moreover, the teams demonstrated prototypes developed with the awarded subsidies, highlighting the unlimited potential of NCKU campus innovation.


NCKU Vice President Wei-Che Chuang encouraged students in his speech, emphasizing that coming to NCKU is not just about learning knowledge but also about understanding that innovation is about solving market problems, or pain points. He urged students to form teams, emphasizing the importance of soft skills. Vice President Chuang believes that students who acquire soft skills will be the successful leaders of the future. NCKU has been the leading school in Taiwan in the fields of innovation, entrepreneurship, and industry-academia collaboration for seven consecutive years. Vice President Chuang expressed his hope that the future of Taiwan begins with NCKU.


The event featured alumni sharing their entrepreneurial experiences. Ting-Kuan Chen, the founder of "FunNow," emphasized the importance of understanding that entrepreneurship is about solving market problems, or pain points. Yi-Hsien Liao, the founder of "物外 YSTUDIO," discussed the difficulties in running a brand or company, highlighting the importance of persistence when faced with challenges. Chung-Chieh Chen, co-founder of "阿比特," talked about the critical role of funding in entrepreneurship, stating that "the entrepreneurial project must follow the market because funding follows the market." The three entrepreneurs provided different perspectives on the essential aspects of entrepreneurship.


Liang-Ming Whang, the newly appointed director of the NCKU Center for Industry-Academia Collaboration and Innovation, pointed out that the center has many counseling and subsidy programs. The NCKU Dream Project, in its sixth year, has been a very successful case, supporting many student teams with entrepreneurial ideas. The process involves students initially working alone, forming a dream team, and creating a prototype for the team. Through workshops and mentorship, students gradually construct a virtual product. The project aims to allow students from different academic backgrounds to brainstorm and communicate, integrating knowledge into the discussion. With mentor guidance, students enhance the completeness of their presentations, effectively mastering the secrets of project execution and successful pitches.


The NCKU Dream Project has nurtured numerous new startup teams over its six-year span, establishing a foundation for research and development and fostering a business-minded approach. Notable success stories include the 2022 Genomic Medicine Center team developing the "Smart High-Quality Embryo Prediction System icONE" and the team led by Professor Che-Wei Lin from the Department of Biomedical Engineering creating the "Augmented Reality Mirror Therapy System." Both teams received substantial grants from the National Science Council in 2023, showcasing the success of the NCKU Dream Project's comprehensive support for new startup teams.


Among the selected teams this year, the "Pioneers" team led by Professor Hui-Chou Shao developed a wind turbine that overcomes operational bottlenecks in traditional small and medium-sized wind turbines, significantly enhancing the efficiency of wind-solar complementation.


The "Sonic-stride" team, composed of industrial design students, presented a real-time music-generating sound interaction system and creator platform. The team emphasizes creators traversing the soundscapes of the city, exploring the city with every step. Sonic-stride is an augmented reality (AR) sound experience app that provides real-time generated music content and interactive design. Users can listen to different sounds with each step, creating a unique auditory experience in the city.


Responding to the popular theme of "Zero Carbon Emissions," an "ESG Sustainable Environmental Protection Zone" was set up at the event. The C-BOX team, composed of members of the NCKU Circular Economy Club, installed environmental cups for attendees to borrow and use, aiming to reduce the use of disposable tableware as a demonstration area for the circular economy. The event also promoted the "Carbon Collection for All" activity. Attendees who uploaded invoices for using their own environmentally friendly cups to the Citizens' Sustainable Development "Carbon Collection for All" application system could receive sponsorship prizes and lottery chances from the Bank of Shanghai, providing tangible rewards to acknowledge consumers for their green and friendly consumption behavior, creating green benefits for carbon reduction and waste reduction.


The NCKU Dream Project, launched in 2018, aims to discover and subsidize early-stage campus startup teams. It provides a friendly guide for NCKU students and faculty who are unfamiliar with entrepreneurship, creating a pathway for entrepreneurial guidance. Since its inception, the project has subsidized over 200 campus teams with nearly NT$18 million, guiding 63 teams to obtain various innovation and entrepreneurship project and competition awards with subsidies totaling nearly NT$81 million.
