MEMORIES

 

OUR STORY

SEM first started as a monthly meetup event in January 2019, the founders - three experienced tech startup community builders - stumbled at disconnectivity of the innovation and the local grassroots network. They started the events by bringing together entrepreneurs, social workers, policymakers, academia, and more to dill down to the different perspectives of the same social issue, identify the blockers, and encourage collaboration towards disruptive changes.

Through organizing monthly events, SEM has grown into a community of 1500+ members with diverse backgrounds, with 10 trained event organizers and community builders. SEM Taiwan chapter is founded in 2020 to build bridges across the cities. 

Taking inspiration from TEDx, SEM adopts the decentralized governance through empowering the community builders to organize their own events with SEM brand and network.
