The US China Innovation and Investment Summit (UCIS) provides a unique opportunity for U.S.-based technology companies to connect with investors, strategic partners, leading incubators/accelerators, and professional services firms from China. It is an excellent platform for companies to leverage significant resources from China to accelerate their growth and to expand their market potential. The UCIS 2017 will bring together more than 500 participants. Approximately 150 representatives of technology companies and 200 investors from China, and 150 representatives of innovative technologies and companies from the U.S., who are seeking cross-border opportunities across a range of focused industries. The UCIS aims to:

  • Facilitate collaboration between innovative technology companies, venture capitalists, private equity, startup accelerators and incubators
  • Help Chinese investors access and invest in the best-in-class technologies and products located in the U.S.A.
  • Help U.S.-based technology companies source investors and partners who can help them to access the Chinese market

Please note that this program takes place at the Omni Houston, 4 Riverway. For ticketing questions, please contact the US-China Innovation Alliance at 713.357.9513.

About the Conference

About the US-China Innovation Alliance

The US-China Innovation Alliance (UCIA) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that promotes innovation through the exchange of ideas and collaboration between China and the US. We organize the annual US-China Innovation and Investment Summit (UCIS) in Houston, which provides a unique opportunity for innovative technology startups to connect with investors, strategic partners, leading incubators/accelerators, and professional services firms from China. It is an excellent platform for technology companies to leverage significant resources from China to accelerate their growth and to expand their market potential. In 2017, we launched the InnoSTARS Competition, which allows growth-stage technology companies in five core industry areas to compete for the chance to win attendance to UCIS as well as an all-expenses paid roadshow to China, where they will have an opportunity to showcase their business and products to a wide audience of qualified potential investors and relevant partners. The UCIA also organizes roadshows to bring innovative US technology companies to China for B2B matchmaking and provides other services to help US-based companies connect with complimentary Chinese resources.
