Jack Ma by Cindy, Jaeysen and Richard

Starting from only 18 people including him and his wife, now Jack Ma is the leader of a big company in china that employs thousands of people, reducing unemployment and poverty rate and has a charity foundation of his own. Surprised by the wonders of internet, Jack Ma saw an opportunity to build a business trade of chinese products through the internet. Although his attempts to convince investors failed, he didn’t give up with his brilliant ideas until softbank agreed to fund the business, he succeeded to create the biggest e-commerce in china. Jack Ma intends to use the internet and Alibaba’s influence to facilitate more globalized trade across borders beyond China and to help SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises) across the world.  Jack Ma vows that helping SMEs to succeed is much like a religious calling for him. Jack Ma learned the incredible power of connectivity, especially how the internet can greatly impact global trade, especially for SMEs. Jack Ma believes that customers always come first, employees second and investors come third. He quoted this “If Alibaba doesn’t get bigger and more successful than Walmart or Microsoft, I will regret it for the rest of my life. Our predecessors invested in us, it is therefore our (this generation’s) responsibilities to do better than them.”What we can learn from Jack Ma is that if you see an opportunity, then you should take it and don’t give up on it easily. He also stated to have values to live by and don’t kill competitors but empower them, only then we can be successful.
