Renowned Speakers


HYSTA was established in 1999 by a group of Chinese entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley, who are today leading figures in China’s increasingly dynamic business ecosystem. From its humble beginning as a network forum for entrepreneurs, HYSTA has evolved and grown to what it is today – one of the largest and most influential professional organizations bridging U.S. and China to foster entrepreneurship, leadership, and technical and business collaboration across the Pacific.

HYSTA has become a trusted network for more than 20,000 members, including both young talents as well as those who have accumulated years of wisdom. Its Annual Conference, particularly, brings together the most influential U.S.-China business leaders and has witnessed many moments of great historical importance: the 1 billion deal between Jack Ma and Jerry Yang, the official launch of Sequoia China, the founding of Northern Light Capital, and many more. In close partnership with more than 300 organizations across the globe, HYSTA works together with top universities, global corporations and influential professional, entrepreneurial and technology associations to unite a diverse community in driving innovation, exploring career and business opportunities and building up cross-border partnerships.

With its strong presence in Silicon Valley, HYSTA has played an active role in the region’s mainstream innovation ecosystem and is looking to continuously increase its influence across the U.S. and beyond.
