We exist to improve lives through language
In 1982, a little girl from Lithuania sold seeds at her local market.
It wasn’t long before the young girl became a pioneering trader led by the principle of trust. In fact, she was one of the first to improve working conditions for her fellow ‘hawkers’, or market sellers. But it was her ground-breaking idea to unite people through language and better software that inspired Jurga Zilinskiene to found our company in 2001.
In the years since, Guildhawk has grown into a business that unites thousands of people across the world. We inspire the next generation of young people to learn languages, use AI for good, and to become entrepreneurs or ‘hawkers’ like our founder.
Together, we create solutions that save lives, protect our environment and improve productivity. Our mission is infinite and our continued relevance depends on trust, just as it did when that little girl started selling seeds. Today, all our experience is here to help you and the next generation of young ‘hawkers’ create a better future.
