HYSTA was established in 1999 by a group of Chinese entrepreneurs living in Silicon Valley. From its humble beginning as a network forum for entrepreneurs, HYSTA has since evolved into one of the largest and most influential professional organizations in Silicon Valley, connecting the United States and China to enable greater entrepreneurship, leadership, and technical collaboration between both countries.
HYSTA strives to cultivate a healthy and trustworthy network for our members to benefit from, providing a platform to exchange knowledge from young talents to industry leaders. HYSTA is a valuable partner for those interested in China and in accessing the rich and vibrant business community located in Silicon Valley and other parts of the U.S.
We aim to foster entrepreneurship by facilitating networks and exchange of ideas among entrepreneurs in a cross-border setting. We support entrepreneurship by connecting talents, mentors, investors, strategic partners, and businesses to create a thriving entrepreneurship ecosystem.
We work closely with our network of senior executives at global companies. We provide mentorship to younger professionals and entrepreneurs, helping them to elevate their careers, take on active management roles, and become business leaders in the global economy.
