It took him some time to build enough cash flow from different gigs and investments he made on the side, but today QI Group is one of the world’s largest multilevel marketing and real estate holdings companies.
Vijay Eswaran also faced false accusations from some former shareholders, but he hasn’t let that deter him from staying true to the belief that serving others instead of taking advantage of them will always lead to good things.
Eswaran cofounded QI Group in Hong Kong in 1998 after entering multilevel marketing with the Cosway Group not long before. Prior to that, Eswaran was a marketing consultant for several technology companies including Synaptics and IBM.
He had grown up in Malaysia and was taught about spiritualism and respect for others by his father Vijayratnam whom Eswaran later established a charity organization in his honor. Eswaran’s education includes a bachelor’s degree in socioeconomics from London’s School of Economics and an MBA from Southern Illinois University.
QI Group consists of ecommerce in the health and wellness industries and luxury vacation packages through QNet and Qi Lifestyle and its traveler companies.
It also has property management for vacation villas and credit and financing services through QI Asset Management, and currently Eswaran is funding construction of QI University-Perak’s new green campus housing project. This housing project will include several new student housing sections and commercial spaces and even have eco-friendly public transportation.
Vijay Eswaran made Forbes Asia twice as one of Asia’s richest businessmen and one of their Heroes of Philanthropy thanks to his work at RYTHM Foundation and Vijayratnam Foundation. He has several books about business leadership and how spiritualism can make great leaders including In The Sphere Of Silence and On The Wings Of Thought. He is a featured speaker at several business summits including the World Economic Forum.
