HYSTA - Yabuli Night 2015


HYSTA-Yabuli Night returns to Silicon Valley: Meet China's Powerhouse Executives and Discover What Chinese Investments Mean to Valley Startups?)

Two informative panel discussions and an exclusive networking evening at HYSTA-Yabuli Night (2015) connect the best and brightest of Silicon Vally with powerhouse executives from China's evolving industry!

Last April, HYSTA hosted a successful demo day and networking event with the prestigious Chinese executive club, Yabuli Forum. Several of HYSTA's startup alumni who appeared at the demo last year have since successfully raised series A rounds and one startup got acquired by a Chinese public company.

The 2014 HYSTA-Yabuli Night gave attending delegates intimate access to an insider's view of Silicon Valley's vibrant startup community.

This year, our guests are returning with even more interest. The 2015 HYSTA-Yabuli Night will take that relationship building to the next level with a series of conversations specifically addressing the challenges and opportunities in cross-border technology investments.
