Founded in 1985 by George Hara, the Alliance Forum Foundation was incorporated in 1995 as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in California with the mission to identify cutting-edge technologies, encourage sustainable social and industrial development founded on those technologies, and promote social change for the advancement of our society. To attain its mission the Foundation sponsors forums and meetings such as the World Alliance Forum in San Francisco.
Because of its work, the Alliance Forum Foundation has held Special Consultative Status with the United Nations ECOSOC since 2011.

Since 2013, the World Alliance Forum in San Francisco (WAFSF) has focused on advancing regenerative medicine. In the past three years, a total of more than one thousand leaders from the US, Japan, and other countries, representing diverse companies from different industries, academic and research institutions, governments, and nonprofit organizations were in attendance. As a result of this premier, annual international conference, multiple partnerships and countless connections were formed.
This year, WAFSF attempts to broaden its impact by expanding the focus into other novel healthcare technologies. In particular, the commercialization and industrialization of healthcare IoT & digital health, gene therapy and cancer immunotherapy, and regenerative medicine are the Forum’s central theme.
Immersion in the active discussions by leading visionaries and unique attendee composition at WAFSF encourages cross-industry, cross-sector, and cross-boarder collaborations, which makes WAFSF an important destination for business development.
