Professionals from all over Copenhagen came together at Copenhagen Fintech Lab on January 18th for an event titled: Entering the Chinese Market. ARYZE, the organizer, had invited some high-profile speakers who shared their rich experiences with doing business in China. Approximately 60 people joined, on a Friday evening, for some casual presentations and networking session.
The event brought up interesting discussions on how Chinese business culture differs from Nordic culture, and what measures a Danish business could take to adapt. There were questions surrounding Chinese traditional beliefs that could have an impact on ones brand.
