Established in 2008, ChinaSF is an economic initiative of San Francisco in close partnership with the San Francisco Center for Economic Development. ChinaSF’s mission is job creation in San Francisco, accomplished through the recruitment and retention of inbound investment and companies to San Francisco. At the same time, ChinaSF helps San Francisco companies expand into the China market.
In January, we hosted our first ContinuumSF Innovation and Credit Conference in partnership with SyncUS. With over 400 attendees, ContinuumSF featured two full days of speakers and panels conveying leading trends and best practices in cross-border investment, crowdfunding, healthcare innovation, real-estate, and online payment security.
The San Francisco Business Times presented:
ChinaSF's Executive Director, Darlene Chiu Bryant, speaks about the positive outlook of inbound investment from China in the San Francisco Bay Area despite the country's economic slowdown. The panel, hosted by the San Francisco Business Times focused on how China's volatile financial markets can be both an opportunity and challenge for U.S. businesses.
