Helping foreign organizations
Sell in China.
Buy from China.
Operate in China.

It’s like having your own local team in China without setting up a team in China.

Rent-a-team offers

  • Local team in China
  • No language and cultural barriers
  • On-going projects, or short one-time tasks
  • Transparent fees
  • Not tied down to long-term commitments
  • Pay-as-you-go

How rent-a-team works

  • You tell us what you need help with

    Let us know what you’re currently planning to do in China by
    filling this out or booking a call for a chat.

  • We offer a solution

    Based on your needs, we’ll recommend the team’s most suitable
    in-house solution or try to customize one for you.

  • Your team gets to work

    Purchase the solution, and your on-the-ground team will get to work on
    accomplishing your task in China.

For a transparent fee, you get a fully operational
representative team
that executes on your behalf
in China – be it market entry and expansion, sourcing and
procurement, or setting up and running local operations.

Simple as that.
It’s like having a team in China… without setting up a team in China.  The main point of contact where all your local business gets managed.  Without hiring additional people, registering a legal entity, learning Mandarin, or traveling to China.

+ an experienced team to cover your back.

02.

Local Freelancers
& Agencies

Local individuals or agencies that are often knowledgeable in a specific field. Fees charged are usually not transparent, and success is often limited to their capability, experience, network, attitude, ethics, etc.

Talent Dispatching Via
Local Agencies
