About us

Datenna is the world’s leading provider of science, innovation and industry data on China. We strive to minimise the information imbalance between China and the rest of the world. By helping governments be better informed about the Chinese market, better policy decisions can be made and uninformed decision making can be avoided. 

In order to realise this, we use automated data curation processes and algorithms to standardise, correct, link and translate millions of data points. This results in the creation of multiple data platforms that are used daily to make decisions on important China-related topics, such as allow foreign investments or not. 

As more and more governments are using our platforms, we are expending to meet their demands and to realise the creation of even better data platforms. To achieve this, we are looking for experts who thrive in a quick-paced and innovative work environment.
