Beijing ByteDance Technology Co Ltd.
ByteDance is a Chinese Internet technology company operating several machine learning-enabled content platforms, headquartered in Beijing. ByteDance's core product, Toutiao, is a popular content platform in China.
Driven by a passion to connect people with information, Yiming Zhang founded ByteDance in 2012. With a natural instinct for new technologies and social trends, Yiming saw an opportunity to combine the power of artificial intelligence with the growth of mobile internet to revolutionize the way people consume and receive information. This made ByteDance one of the first companies to launch mobile-first products powered by machine learning technology.
Our vision is to build global creation and interaction platforms - we aim to not just deliver information but serve as a creative hub, hosting and nurturing creators. This belief guides our strategy in product development. Alongside our flagship product Toutiao, the largest content discovery and creation platform in China, we have also developed a diverse portfolio of products that are popular around the world, most notably musical.ly and TopBuzz.
ByteDance's products continue to grow in international markets with a world of creators and content. As of March 2018, ByteDance's products are available in over 40 countries and markets including China, Japan, South Korea, North America, Europe, Latin America, Southeast Asia and India.
