Billion-dollar tech firm opens European HQ


Billion-dollar tech firm Mindtree has opened new European headquarters in the UK.

The technology services and digital transformation company, which is headquartered in Bangalore, India and New Jersey, USA, has equipped the London office with the first European Digital Pumpkin innovation hub.

The interactive hub is aimed at turning digital ideas into real-world solutions which can be applied across entire organisations.

It leverages the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, cognitive solutions, virtual and augmented reality, machine learning, conversational platforms, cloud and Big Data.

Since the launch of Mindtree’s Bangalore-based Digital Pumpkin in 2013 and the US-based Digital Pumpkin in 2017, the hubs have been the seedbeds behind more than 100 strategic digital transformation engagements.

“Our new headquarters and Digital Pumpkin innovation hub enables us to help our European customers thrive in the digital age by accessing the latest design thinking principles and experimentation with cutting-edge technologies,” said Guita Blake, senior VP and head of global sales and Europe.

“The new office will provide the platform to further elevate our digital capabilities, whilst maintaining our unique culture so we can continue to help customers create new possibilities for competitive advantage.”

Indian conglomerate Larsen & Toubro recently acquired a controlling stake of more than 60 per cent in Mindtree.

Mindtree co-founders Krishnakumar Natarajan, Rostow Ravanan and NS Parthasarathy stepped down following the deal.
