About Us


InnoSpring is the first US-China technology startup accelerator for globally-minded companies. We facilitate startups interested in opportunities on both sides of the Pacific.

Our focus has been international from the start. Whether you’re an international founder or a globally-minded company, we can help you get where you want to go. We encourage and provide the support for startups to expand beyond their home countries to exploit huge market opportunities abroad. Founded in 2012, InnoSpring is a joint project between Tsinghua University Science Park (TusPark), Northern Light Venture Capital (NLVC), Shui On Group (Shui On) and Silicon Valley Bank (SVB). It is located in Santa Clara, California.
