Why a Nordic Tech Company Should Apply:
China is a huge, complex and competitive market. Just knowing where to start can take years and involve significant investment. Before undertaking such an investment, it is wise to first make an initial exploration of what your options and opportunities are. This is where HTW offers you the most resource efficient- and risk-free way to do this.
