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 the commercialization and industrialization of new technologies in healthcare fields such as regenerative medicine, gene therapy, cancer immunotherapy, and digital health.
2017 WAFSF highlights dramatic new innovations in the lab, clinic, at the regulatory level, and in finance, that will help pave a new path in the era of aging population and chronic diesases. It includes presentations from lawmakers regarding new laws and regulatory pathways designed to deliver better healthcare, and business leaders who will discuss new business and financing models. In addition, the conference will feature presentations from top-tier regenerative medicine, gene therapy, and digital health companies and researchers. Esteemed thought leaders will also discuss how companies and universities can continue to foster innovation and bring game changing therapeutics to the market.
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.
