Named after Monte Jade, the highest mountain in Taiwan, the Monte Jade Science and Technology Association ("Monte Jade") was established by a group of high-tech Chinese-American executives and companies in Silicon Valley in 1990. Their initial driving force was to bring together the high-tech companies from the Bay Area and the other side of Pacific which crave entrepreneurship, business operation, management, investment, technologies and marketing and create their synergy respectively. After its inception, Chinese around the globe echo its vision and found their own local chapters. Then, a Global Monte Jade Association was formed to encompass all the local branches.
To respond to Monte Jade's entrepreneurial spirit of pursuing excellence and gazing far, Mr. Chao-Shiuan Liu made a daring call; Monte Jade Association (Taiwan) was formed on May 5, 2001 in Taipei. His vision is to establish a global knowledge-based platform focus on technologies, entrepreneurship, and investment affair for the Chinese community.

They are mostly founders and corporate officers of large and midsized companies in Taiwan. Those members will receive a bi-monthly Monte Jade Newsletter publication and supporters will receive electronic mail of Monte Jade activities monthly. The board members of the Association are elected from those influential companies or organization heads by all the members. The chairmen are then chosen from the board members to head the board meeting, activity planning and budget allocation. The secretary office will be the operational arm to promote these assigned activities.
