Welcome to 1421 Consulting Group

What do we do?

1421 Consulting Group (1421) is specialized in supporting Western companies setting up and growing their business in China. Via our one-stop service model, we are able to balance the initial investment needed to discover opportunities and open the Chinese market with expected returns of investment. We use our strong knowledge and network for assisting companies in China. The combination of our Western colleagues with vast experience in China, and our Chinese colleagues with strong understanding of the western needs and desires, makes us able to assist you in the best possible way. 

Why 1421?

In the year 1421, China discovered the world with a large fleet and conquered that world on paper. They requested all kings, warlords and tribes to submit to the emperor by signing a piece of paper. They did not wage a war, request taxes or enslave people. This striking difference is at the heart of explaining the difference between the West and China. 1421 Consulting Group (1421) is aimed at bridging this specific gap, when assisting companies in China. 

1421 helps new Western companies to identify opportunities in China, and assists established Western companies in navigating their way through China.
