“I see InTeahouse as security going into the Chinese market.”

Artaic, a Boston based company, was first introduced to InTeahouse by Tom Ryden, Executive Director of MassRobotics. Artaic’s CEO Ted Acworth attended InTeahouse US-China Robotics Summit in October 2016. Four month later, Artaic raised $2MM funding from a chinese investor Lesso and InnoBanker Holdings.

 We help introduce international companies to strategic business partners and investors. Each year we organize several investment summits in China and cover 80% of travel costs for selected international companies. Our summits are focused on CleanTech, Robotics/AI and FinTech.
