Past Mixing Dinner Reception during JPM 

On January 15, 2020, YAFO Capital successfully held JPM China-US-Japan Mixing Dinner (East Meets West JPM Mixing Dinner) in San Francisco, USA. It was an unforgettable and extremely lucky event, as it was held just one week before the coronavirus explosion in 2020. Pharmaceutical companies and investors from all over the world gathered in San Francisco for JPM, unaware of the incredible impact that the quiet invasion of Covid-19 would have on the pharmaceutical industry’s future. 

Nearly 185 people attended the reception hosted by YAFO, gathered at the HarborView in San Francisco, with the participants including management from China (50 pharmaceutical companies), Japan (20 pharmaceutical companies), biotech companies from the US, Europe, and other countries overseas (80 companies), listed pharmaceutical companies, funds, and other institutions. At the dinner, YAFO invited representative business leaders from China, Japan, and the US to share in-depth insights and cooperation cases on cross-border transactions, which were well received.

Since then, our activities did not stop due to the coronavirus but started a new journey: the ACCESS China online roadshow event. Since the beginning of 2020, we have held 11 online events, accompanying you through two years. We have been inviting a total of more than 1000 domestic and overseas companies to conduct roadshows, and the number of attendees has only increased. This year, with everyone’s hope, we decided to re-open our offline gathering in San Francisco. The Mixing Dinner during the JPM 2023 conference ……
