On Feb 4, 1990, a group of Chinese-American executives from high-tech companies founded the Monte Jade Science and Technology Association in San Jose, California, making full use of the human resources in the San Francisco Bay Area and Taiwan. The company, named after Mount Yu (Jade Mountain), the highest mountain in Taiwan, symbolizes vision and sustainability and the persistence of Chinese entrepreneurs.
To promote knowledge transfer, Chao-Shiuan Liu founded the association’s Taiwan branch on May 23, 2001. Monte Jade Taiwan's objective is to promote the cooperation and mutual flow of technology and investment among Taiwanese and North American high-tech companies. This provides an opportunity for professionals and corporations on both sides of the Pacific to network and share valuable experiences in investment, opportunities, management, technology and business information exchange.
The association, appealing to talent from both industry and academia, hosts a variety of activities including annual conferences, dinner meetings, forums and training workshops in order to build up a think tank in the global Chinese community.
Since its establishment, Monte Jade has expanded from Silicon Valley and Taiwan to the Chinese mainland. It will keep serving as a platform for high-tech industry exchanges among the global Chinese community.
