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. You will have the opportunity to meet leaders from various fields, network with talented people, and build up valuable relationships.

When & Where
As the world marches unavoidably toward globalization, the impact of China's vast and rapidly growing economy is felt in all aspects of business and investment. HYSTA (Hua Yuan Science and Technology Association) is excited to be a part of this historic transformation and we are proud to represent China. Our aim is to promote business, cultural exchange and to foster beneficial U.S. - China business relationships. We also endeavor to promote entrepreneurship and provide coaching and support for Chinese professionals in the Silicon Valley. We hope to contribute toward the success of a new generation of Chinese entrepreneurs and business leaders in the global economy.
HYSTA was established in 1999 by a group of Chinese entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley. From humble beginning as foreign students with almost no assets or connections, they became prominent business leaders in the Silicon Valley. They created HYSTA with the hope to share their experiences and knowledge with young Chinese professionals entering the business world. HYSTA, in Chinese, means both Chinese origin and resources for the Chinese.
Today, HYSTA is the leading Chinese professional organization in the Silicon Valley. It has become a trusted network for both young talents, those who have accumulated years of wisdom and a platform to exchange knowledge between the two. HYSTA has also become a valuable partner for a wide range of businesses interested in China and in accessing the rich and vibrant Chinese business community in the Silicon Valley.
