Dr. Vijay Eswaran is the new force behind multi-level marketer QI group which he co-founded and serves as Executive Chairman. The Malaysian businessman is a rising star. His successful company and innovative work ethic garnering him a reputation as a disruptive entrepreneur. In reality, Dr. Eswaran is simply going with the flow.
Dr. Eswaran sat down with Ideamensch recently to talk of QI group and the reasoning behind it. According to him the bedrock of the company is entrepreneur making. “We are a disruptive company,” Dr. Eswaran stated, “we upset the pattern of thinking and are pioneers in that regard.”
QI Group of Companies has been around since 1998. It was the first Amazon-like company before Amazon came around. As a multi-level marketer it funds several smaller business that live beneath its banner. Its services ranging for luxury retail, to wellness, to media, to travel, and even to telecommunication. Headquartered in Hong Kong has a range of subsidiaries stretching from China to Malaysia.
The idea of entrepreneur making is a very recent concept and part of the new wave of thinking hitting the business world. As things become more automated under the rise of technology traditional employment, factory production, and marketing are beginning to evolve. Their traditional concepts changing. Dr. Eswaran is one of many businessman cashing in those changes. “Millenials do not even care about driver’s licenses anymore,” He told Ideamensch, “why should the with Uber and Grab around.”
Companies like Uber are a textbook example of the future of business. It is less about retail and more about services. Automation and computerization taking over menial tasks, and people living for experiences. This new generation of ideas has to have a fluid business that rides the waves with it, and QI is such a company. “We took away boundaries with e-commerce,” Dr. Eswaran says, “Because business is no longer regional or national but global.”
