Information about the Entrepreneur
Mr. Clement Lin is the Founder & CEO of NEXCOM International Co., LTD (NEXCOM), a leading company in Embedded Systems and one of the key solution providers in Industry 4.0, or AIoT Digital Transformation. With over three decades of experience in the IT industry, Mr. Lin has played a key role in NEXCOM’s growth since its establishment in 1992. Prior to NEXCOM, he served as the System BU head in Mitac International Co., LTD and is widely recognized as the first Product Manager of the Taiwan PC industry.

Mr. Lin was born in the country area of Taichung City, Taiwan. As a farmer’s son, he knew all the details of peasant work. Mr. Lin graduated from the EE department of the National Taiwan University in 1978 and got his MBA degree from the National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University in 1980.

In 2001, NEXCOM encountered a downturn during the dot com bubble. Its star products were mostly used in Computer Telephony Integration and Semiconductor equipment, two categories that were severely impacted by the bubble. Fortunately, NEXCOM turned around two years later by repositioning itself as a leading IPC company with vertical embedded platforms like fan-less systems, network security platforms, in-vehicle computers, etc.

Other Interesting Facts about the Entrepreneur
Besides the daily workload in NEXCOM, Mr. Lin is an amateur poet in Chinese traditional poems. The ideas of his poems come from all segments of life, like interesting news, beautiful photos, special gatherings, or exciting tours. Mr. Lin always shares these poems with his friends in the related Line groups and on Facebook.

Through continuous efforts in business and poetry, Mr. Lin always highlights that being professional is easy if one can overcome the difficulty of tedious practice.
Company Achievements & Role as Entrepreneur
NEXCOM shipped the world’s fastest Nextstep486-based workstation in 1993 and kept its position as a leading company in technology. The company presented the world’s first dual PentiumPro IPC, Compact PCI, and Blade Server platforms since 1998. Based on its strong hardware capability and vertical domain know-how, NEXCOM invested lots of resources in the development of Industry 4.0-related solutions from Robotics, IoT, and Smart Factory, all the way to AIoT Digital Transformation solutions.

Today, NEXCOM is a global leader in delivering Robots, IoT, and Industry 4.0 solutions based on Open Standards. Mr. Lin heavily promotes Open Standards worldwide, recognizing its importance for the booming areas of Eco-Systems of Robots, IoT, and Industry 4.0. This has helped the company to garner strong support from enterprises, education systems, and government agencies. Mr. Lin highlighted that both the automation and IoT markets are not fragmented in essence. This “fragmentation” is the result, not the cause, as the cause is that there is no wide support for Open Standards yet.

With his industry experience, Mr. Lin recognizes the potential of the Industry 4.0 market, which is forecasted to reach trillions of dollars, and is optimistic about NEXCOM’s contribution to its growth. This will be done by offering free downloads of IoT and Robot development kits as “the Easiest IoT/Robot Builder” and training programs. These free downloadable items are being expanded to foster IoT start-ups and the Industry 4.0 or AIoT ecosystems.

Vision, Mission, & Future Plans
Mr. Lin is always dreaming of a society based on technology, rich with culture, and fully protecting the environment. Now with AIoT Digital Transformation solutions and strong ESG sense globally, the dream might come true.

Mr. Lin strongly believes that AIoT Digital Transformation solutions are the keys to making ESG visions come true. With the lowest inputs, the highest output, and minimum environmental impacts, AIoT solutions could allow enterprises or any other entities to work highly efficiently as well as effectively.

The company’s future plan is to build up a booming cyber ecosystem through free downloads, co-creations, the matchmaking of all supply and demand for the lowest cost to share technologies, and to develop new solutions. NEXCOM will also help the IoT start-ups to grow, and act as a key platform that assists all enterprises and all entities to complete the AIoT Digital Transformation. Ultimately, its goal is to protect the environment from getting worse and then to bring the Earth back to normal status gradually. Mr. Lin is very optimistic about humanity’s future with all the new AIoT solutions based on these B2B&C cyber platforms all over the world.

Finally, Mr. Lin has one piece of advice to share with others, “AI is the new generation S/W application, and AI + IoT, the AIoT is the key to balance the human beings and the environments for an everlasting Earth”.
