APEC Digital Economy and Innovative Entrepreneurship Online Forum: Enhancing Inclusive Participation and Digital Upskilling for Youths is a two half-day online forum on digital economy and youth innovative entrepreneurship, held in March 2022 to bring together government officials from related sectors, successful start-up founders, young entrepreneurs, start-up incubation centers or accelerators, and representatives from venture capital companies. For this project, we will also invite past participants from previous projects to share their entrepreneurial journey, the regional resources that they leverage to grow their business, the current market trends, and the most up-to-date and necessary digital skills. Furthermore, we will also invite representatives, with a focus on female representatives, from successful start-ups to showcase their stories, especially on how they survive or even thrive during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and global economic crisis. In this way, a regional entrepreneurial ecosystem will be established to provide useful resources and assistance for young entrepreneurs-to-be within APEC region and thus enhance inclusive participation and digital upskilling for youth. The forum will also focus on up-to-date digital economy growth and trends in the COVID-19 affected society, with focus on how entrepreneurs in Chinese Taipei successfully coped with this pandemic.
