Mission About Team Awards

MISSION

To be the global resource
for Chinese digital media
and advertising. Not
because of our bottom
line or our growth,
but because of
the impact we make.

Mission

Founded with the mission, “China, Connected” – connection, really is, at the heart of everything we do. With an expansive global reach, we’re a team of creators, communicators, problem-solvers and lateral thinkers, whose effectiveness lies in our targeted approach toward helping clients navigate the Chinese market and achieve their goals.

Team

Hylink is one big team comprised of thinkers, makers and doers.
