Why Tiandi

Leveraging Scandinavian Startup & Tech Community

There are more than tech companies in Stockholm. Sweden outside of California has the largest number of Unicorns (startups with more than 1BUSD in valuation) and particularly per capita. The opportunities are vast for Asian companies to acquire, at reasonable cost, high-performance engineering teams or the latest and greatest technology. Valuations compared to China is a difference of magnitude in general

Enter and venture into new markets - unknown - requires tactics, planning, experience and most importantly, working with an experienced team to guide and maneuver the unforeseen in order to deliver beyond exception. Tiandi is set up to assist in reaching goals faster, cost-effective and at reduced risk.

It could be leveraging highly talents Swedes in order to set up a stable and qualified engineering team in a lower both cost of R&D but also employee turn-over. It could be to set up a team of highly dedicated sales professionals to grow the user base or acquire new customers. Stockholm is only of the cities where that could happen and based on the actual requirements, Tiandi could consider other cities, such as Helsinki, Oslo or Copenhagen.
