A hands-on team on the ground

What you are most likely lacking, is a hands-on team on the ground.  Explore the market, get due diligence done, connect with carefully pre-vetted vendors…

And finally, get direct assistance from a local team that pitches on your behalf so your products and services can get in front of a massive market in China.

All without the hassle of setting up a team or opening an entity in China just yet.

Avoidable pitfalls in China

Cultural & language barriers

Diversity is beautiful yet complex.  Something that works in your country might be odd for people in China.  Aside from that, Mandarin, with its many dialects, is a tough language to grasp.

With our local team consisting of members from China and from the west, you can rest assured that you’ll be communicating in the way both you and the Chinese locals understand.

Guan xi:
A currency often
valued more
than the yuan

You can’t buy it.  Can’t see it.  Yet – it opens many doors.  It is essential for the success of businesses in China, yet it remains little known and unattainable to most foreign businesses.

We’re talking about strong interpersonal ties that steer every business interaction in China, also known in China as Guan Xi 关系 (“gwan-shee”).

Business Guan Xi consists of several individual dimensions, such as Gan Qing 感情 (emotional attachment), Ren Qing 人情 (reciprocal favour exchange), and Xin Ren 信任 (trust).

We have a dedicated team member that establishes and nurtures this essential Guan Xi on your behalf.  You get a clear path to options available only to locals.

Myriad of information – what is
truly relevant?

Perhaps you’ve tried to sell in China already, but without much success.  There’s a lot of information on China online and it is hard to decipher what’s relevant to you.  Consulting companies out there sell strategies, but it’s ultimately up to you to be there and execute them by yourself.

With Rent-A-Team, aside from strategy, you get a local hands-on team in China that executes.  You don’t have to try it alone anymore and spend valuable resources on trial-and-error.

We do it for you, with you.

here’s what local vendors say about working with us
Our collaboration with Handpicked has always been a smooth and pleasant one. We believe this is largely due to the clarity in conveying their clients' requirements, their diligent project planning, attention to details and proactivity in following up throughout the entire inspection process. They are clearly very responsible towards their clients!
