Our MVP development work with Hanse

Hanse is a data analytics software tool for businesses to identify critical and timely international trade relationships to help them pursue new market opportunities



The renowned economist and senior advisor for Accenture’s Global BlockchainTechnology, Dr Ousmène Jacques Mandeng, first asked us to help develop an idea back in 2017. He wanted a platform that could provide unique search capabilities at a highly detailed level and identify critical trade relationships. Our MVP development team built a highly successful prototype that received critical acclaim from financial experts.

Then in 2020 High Digital obtained a grant from The Sustainable Innovation Fund to further grow Hanse’s search capabilities and feature international trade data.

The UK’s Innovations Agency realised that an investment to enhance the Hanse data analytics tool would be “an important step towards sustainable economic development”, as it would help small and medium-sized businesses across the country to explore new global trading opportunities. Once again, we were hugely excited to work with Dr Mandeng on delivering the new and improved Hanse.


We rebuilt the Hanse website, increased the search capabilities, added a new BI analytics tool, switched from using only annual data to providing both annual and monthly, and improved its visual design.


The new Hanse site with its enriched database and improved search tool launched in Sept 2021. The available monthly data on Hanse is pulled from the UN Comtrade database as soon as they upload it for increased accuracy. We also added more reporting countries to provide subscribers with a wider range of potential trading partners to choose from.


"I have been working with High Digital on the Hanse International Trade Analytics project for several years through beta, V1 and now V2 with funding from InnovateUK. High Digital is a great team to work with, bringing valuable technical skills, domain knowledge, and innovative thinking to the project."

Dr Ousmene Mandeng, Company Director at Hanse
