As one of the most influential Chinese professional associations in the US, HYSTA embraces the mission of fostering entrepreneurship in Silicon Valley, and promoting connections and interactions between Silicon Valley and China.

We believe that entrepreneurial thinking and developing creative technology for new products and services are skills that can be taught, learned, and shared through exchanges. Such a mindset is important, not only for those who want to start new ventures, but also for those who want to be entrepreneurial within large, established companies, or who want to start non-profits or new social ventures.

Opportunities arise from problems, and the world needs more people with an entrepreneurial mindset to capitalize on them. In the meantime, technology, which is evolving at such an astonishing speed in all fields, offers new solutions and approaches to existing problems and continues to provide new opportunities and possibilities to business.

Silicon Valley, as the global center of entrepreneurs and technology, is the best place to host this year’s HYSTA annual conference, where a forum for professional discussions will be offered for exchanges of knowledge and insights related to entrepreneurship, technology, and business success.

This year, over 1,000 people are expected to be in attendance. You will have the opportunity to meet leaders from various fields, network with talented people, and build up valuable relationships.
