Talents and innovation are the endless,
living energy of society

Facilitate Taiwan’s industrial development
Promote regional economic prosperity

In 1990, Mr. Paul Hsu, founding chairman of Epoch Foundation, and Lester C. Thurow, who was then the dean of the Sloan School of Management, saw that globalization was a strong and inevitable trend. They also predicted that the Asia Pacific economy and Chinese-based economies were to play leading roles in the world’s economic developments.

Our Work
The Epoch Foundation takes actions to be the “bridge for promoting knowledge-based economy.” It organizes global industry-academia collaboration programs, cultivates talents, and spawns startups.
Since 1991, we have been developing a niche for Taiwan companies through international industry-academia collaborations.
Since 1998, the Epoch School has been cultivating young talents for society.
In 2007, the Epoch Family was established to gather up the right people so as to build a better society.
In 2008, Garage+ was founded to create a more beautiful life for all, through innovation and entrepreneurship.
