This short research article aims to present the teaching entrepreneurial management for undergraduate students in Taiwan with higher power distance and uncertainty avoidance. Teachers and students have to keep distances and wear masks to avoid infection. However, it reduces the passionate of students to communicate and answer questions. Mobile App such as ZUVIO can help teachers and students to cope the situations. Teachers and students in Taiwan with higher power distance and higher uncertainty avoidance prefer to present lectures and ask students to memorize knowledge form textbooks. However, the kinds of teaching methods do not fit entrepreneurship courses, which require creativity and innovation. We used teamwork, project writing, and competition assessment to inspire their creativity and innovation, in order to reduce uncertainty avoidance. Moreover, we use online education software, ZUVIO, for students to vote on the project anonymously with the intention of decreasing power distance. Studies carried out at one university in Taiwan in 2018. Our sample came from around 50 students attended an entrepreneurship course in a university in Taiwan. At the end of the semester, students, mostly from China, Taiwan, Malaysia and Indonesia, students present innovative projects, attend competitions, and receive brilliant awards. We recommend teachers in Asian countries with higher power distance and higher uncertainty avoidance revise teaching methods according to their teaching situation. For instance, most business school teachers use paper-and-pencil tests to assess learning outcomes, but a small number of teachers competition to evaluate performance. It could cause a conflict situation between teachers.
