Nordic Innovation House Hong Kong: New Community Director

We are very delighted to welcome Binh Johansson to the Nordic team. Binh brings more than 15 years of experience from China and Hong Kong into her new position.

I am thrilled to take up the position as Community Director for Nordic Innovation House Hong Kong. Having worked for Nordic companies in the region for many years, I have followed the exciting development that has been taking place in Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area.

– Binh Johansson

Since graduating from Lund University in 2001, Binh has worked with several large Nordic companies as well as startups. In 2007 she moved to Shanghai to work for a Swedish company that wanted to expand to the Chinese market, and has since then worked from Hong Kong and China. From Nordic Innovation House Hong Kong, Binh sees great potential in helping Nordic companies.

"Today, an increasing number of Nordic companies are looking into the possibility of scaling up by expanding their business activities to what has come to be one of the most dynamic and innovative regions in the world. I believe that Nordic Innovation House has an important role to play in this process. My ambition is to facilitate the expansion of innovative Nordic companies by providing local expertise, a strong network and information on the start-up environment in the region. As part of this process, I want to help build a strong Nordic start-up community that successfully integrates into the local entrepreneurial ecosystem."

We are looking forward to an even stronger Nordic cooperation.
