This is also reflected in Tech Mahindra’s commitment to the ongoing expansion in the Nordics region, and the establishment of our new centre in Espoo. It is our endeavor to widen the talent pool, fuel innovation, improve agility to deliver robust solutions, and be closer to our customers’ businesses to drive sustainable growth.”

The team will work on new and emerging technologies such as Quantum computing, Generative AI and Metaverse. The Makers Lab will also plug into the local startup ecosystem and universities to provide new opportunities in R&D across customer industries.
