Healthy news for Finnish startups heading to China
Chinese startup incubator TechCode is opening its Helsinki office during Slush.
The announcement means that Finnish companies intending to enter the Chinese market and commercialise their products and innovations in China now have another viable entry point.
“Finland is a natural next step in TechCode’s expansion,” comments company CEO Erica Huang. “The Finnish startup ecosystem is very active, innovative and productive. TechCode wants to be a part of it. We feel we have a lot to offer for the Finnish startups who are aiming at going global”.
TechCode operates in the areas of health, artificial intelligence and advanced materials. The company has joint resources with China Fortune Land Development (CFLD), one of the leading industry operators in China. This co-operation offers assistance with all-around incubation, global resources and domestic industrialisation into China.
The company will commence operations on day two of Slush, 1 December, with company CEO Huang giving a keynote at the startup event.
Aside from its home turf, TechCode has also launched business activities in Seoul, San Francisco, Tel Aviv and Berlin.
