Jack Ma is one of the most successful businessmen in the world. He is the founder of China's e-Commerce giant, Alibaba Group, which offers consumer-to-consumer (C2C), business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-business (B2B) services via the internet.
The man who was born Ma Yun on September 10, 1964 is one of the richest people in the world. Based on the rank of The World's Billionaires 2017 released Forbes, he occupies the 23rd position with a net worth of US $ 28.3 billion (assuming exchange rate per US $ 1).
Wealth continues to grow, which, when quoted in real time net worth Forbes per Wednesday (3/52017), amounted to US $ 30.6 billion.
The source of Ma's wealth comes from Alibaba, which he built into a "giant star" internet business. Alibaba's Initial Public Offering (IPO) in 2014 broke the record as the largest public share offering in the world.
Although criticized as Alibaba does not maximally limit the sale of counterfeit goods, Ma successfully leads the company and scores high sales. Alibaba also made the target of creating 10 million profitable businesses and 100 million job vacancies in the next 20 years.
