Since the start of operations in 2016, AnyMind Group has continuously expanded its software and solutions and now provides an end-to-end platform for manufacturing, e-commerce enablement, marketing and logistics across 13 markets and 17 offices around Southeast Asia, East Asia, India and the Middle East.
The company has experienced rapid growth in Japan, with the number of employees in Japan expanding more than fivefold from 43 staff in August 2019 to 252 staff (as of 31 August 2021). To further strengthen its operations and accelerate growth in Japan, AnyMind Group has opened a new office to expand its workforce.

With the opening of this satellite office, AnyMind Group has already started hiring staff from the region, and aims to have a 20-person team by 2023. In addition to plans for growing social media and influencer marketing capabilities for the region, AnyMind Group will also look to deepen its collaboration with local governments and local vendors. The company also aims to equip local industries with technology for manufacturing, e-commerce, logistics and other business areas, to further accelerate business growth and drive value creation from local industries to the global stage.
