This is the platform for companies to leverage significant resources from China to accelerate their growth and expand their market potential.

This summit has received great support from the Chinese and American governments and provides valuable resources and crucial access to facilitate and promote collaboration between innovative technology companies, venture capitalists, private equity investors, startup accelerators and incubators of US and China.

D.C. President Donald Trump and President Xi Jinping launched the SCD in April 2017, at Mar-a-Lago.

Testimonials

UCIS proved to be an excellent crash course to introduce us to the Chinese entrepreneurship community and begin building relationships. We found the events to be immersive and the connections to be meaningful. We highly recommend startups considering the Chinese market to participate in this event.
Antina Lee
Co-founder, Perseus Mirrors
The trip to china for the InnoSTARS competition was very enjoyable and a real eye opener. Enjoyable because of the focus on innovation and being in the same space as other innovators, an eye opener because it really highlighted for us the scale and nature of the opportunity for doing business in China and for helping Chinese food businesses do business outside of China.
James Thomas Flynn
Founder and CTO, Harvest Water Cooper

UCIS was a great platform for a quick glance into the Chinese economy, we had the chance to talk with government officials as well as businessmen to get an idea of the scope of the industry and the velocity of its members, if you want to see what China is all about you should come with UCIS.
Wang-tsu Liu
COO, Happinss
We know the China market is essential to our company and that the timing to enter this market is just perfect. Nevertheless, we have no prior experience doing business in China so the InnoSTARS program was most helpful understanding the ‘big picture’ and the ‘rules of the game’.
Apostolos Lerios
VP Strategy, Restream, Inc.
US China Innovation and Investment Summit and the InnoSTARS Roadshow was a great introduction to the Chinese Life Science industry and the landscape of potential investors in China. I learned a lot about what Chinese investors want and how my product might best enter the Chinese market.
William Altman

This summit was a great program to help explore new business opportunities for our company in the Chinese market. We learned many things and got in contact with intermediaries and representatives that could help us launch research studies in China. Beyond the trip,we feel part of a lasting community that can help us grow and scale our company.
