As a non-profit and non-political organization, SVSTA's mission is to provide its members with a platform for the mutual exchange of information and entrepreneurship in science, technology and business on an international scale. A large majority of SVSTA members are senior scientists, technical officers, and company executives working in various high-tech companies such as Cisco, Yahoo, Intel, Apple, Google, IBM, Oracle, Genentech, Marvell, to name a few. Other professionals include entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, lawyers, and accountants who specialize in such fields as the Internet, software engineering, integrated circuits, consumer electronics, optical devices, network communications, new materials, medical equipment, and Bio-pharmacy. Since its establishment, SVSTA has conducted activities such as a professional salon forum for serving local communities, a multitude of business-to-business exchanges, as well as investing in the startup companies of overseas students. Since 1999, the association organizes one to two annual science and technology business delegations that many small groups attend; Shenzhen Hi-tech Fair, Guangzhou International Trade Fair, Chengdu Hi-Tech Fair, to name a few. In addition, SVSTA has established friendly and cooperative relations with many domestic government units, science & technology parks, and enterprises.
