He built a multinational e-commerce, retail, internet, AI, and technology empire. Its subsidiaries include Ant Financial, Alibaba Cloud, Dingding, and Hema, among others. According to a recent report by KPMG, many tech executives have recognized Alibaba as the industry’s most disruptive and innovative company, exceeding even widely popular names like Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, and Google. In the face of many new endeavors in AI, blockchain, new retail, cloud computing and IoT, Alibaba’s progressive mentality, advanced technology, and large capital continuously place it ahead of the game.
