Our Mission: Bridging between Europe and China

The Three Female Founders of Hohot Consulting

Hohot Consulting was established in 2016 by three Chinese ex-pats in Oulu, Finland, who share the same ambition of facilitating business collaborations between Europe and China and calling it a career.


By now, our team has grown to 10+ consultants specialised in the various fields (e.g. e-commerce, digital marketing, translation and interpretation, legal management, accounting and taxation, education and healthcare), and is located in major Finnish and Chinese cities.
