HYSTA (Hua Yuan Science and Technology Association) aims to promote entrepreneurship and career development among Chinese professionals in Silicon Valley, and to facilitate networking and exchange of business ideas among successful Chinese entrepreneurs and executives in Silicon Valley and mainland China.
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 repre-sent 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.

"Having worked in both China and the U.S., I believe technology companies based in these two markets have a lot to learn from each other. I attended and spoke at a number of events hosted by HYSTA and have taken away as much as I've shared with the audience. I am confident that HYSTA will continue to bridge the Pacific, and help many more Chinese professionals in the Silicon Valley to realize their career dreams."
