Seattle Biz-Tech Summit is an annual business and technology conference that showcases innovative companies from China and Seattle. With more than 1,000 attendees and 50 speakers, it’s the largest Seattle-area conference dedicated to collaboration between Chinese and American companies. It’s the premier event for companies and startups looking to thrive locally and internationally.

In partnership with the Seattle Entrepreneurship Club, Nan Hai is proud to host the Seattle Startup Challenge. The event gives the hottest, up-and- coming startups the chance to pitch their brands to investors and venture capital firms from the U.S. and China. It’s the perfect opportunity for innovators and leaders to network and potentially be rewarded with funds to launch their startups.

For generations, Seattle’s Asian community has demonstrated its genuine interest in innovation, technology and culture. Every month, we host events which incorporate one or all of these themes. Check our calendar and browse activities ranging from professional and personal development workshops to cultural events. There’s something for everyone.
