You have a very comfortable office, actually.
Thank you for the time. Thanks for taking some time.
I’ve got some reading and googling to do, but I have the right direction now. Thank you.
That covers a lot of bases there.
Uber’s coming back. This is where that process kind of...
Is that a google "Wednesday 2:00 PM vTaiwan"?
They’ve had a pretty consistently positive reaction?
Just out of curiosity, are you getting anybody in government to do that? I don’t mean forcing them to, but has anyone picked that up?
I’ll send this to some people, too.
Yeah, I don’t really know...
You’ve given me enough things that I can go home and Google this. This stuff is really hard for me to find on my own. It’s hard for me to...
Are they going to do it?
By countersigning, you mean if someone proposes legislation and you get people saying...
I had one other question. How can people help, either individual people or groups of people?
Thanks for the answers.
Maybe this is a dumb question, but this is a proposal or this is a "we’re doing this?"
Is this prototype available for a little while? I’ve seen...
I saw that.

It sounds like a big plan, but what would be the bullet points?

It’s a different thing?
The National Development Fund, they became an LP and GD1 and 500 Startups.

But in Taiwan?
I have not heard of that either.
Anything that I can find online and Google, if you just mention the name, I won’t waste your time.
I’ll look through this...
I’ll Google this later. What was the name, so I can look later?
This I actually get asked about a lot, visas for foreigners, that sort of thing.
I’m not sure.
Me and my cofounder of the company, we under the entrepreneur visa here in Taiwan, so we know about that. We know about the NDF, becoming LPs.
We try to get them the best answers that we can, but we’re a little bit ‑‑ when I say "we," I mean mostly me ‑‑ out of touch with what’s going on. We just want to give them better answers.
The reason why I wanted to come in and meet you is, as foreigners starting a company in Taiwan, we get asked a lot, by a lot of people, "What’s going on in Taiwan? What is the tech community doing?" Any time that we have friends from abroad who ...
Yeah, thanks for taking the time. I don’t want to take too much of your time.
