Jack Ma is the co-founder of Alibaba Group, which started as an e-commerce company and has since transcended to one of the largest multinational tech conglomerates in the world.
Formerly an English teacher, Jack founded Alibaba in 1999 alongside 17 co-founders in a small apartment in Hangzhou City, China.
In 2018, the former Alibaba chairman came to Africa for the 2nd time and officially launched the Netpreneur prize in Johannesburg, a $10 million competition for African tech innovators.
During this time, he also had a seat down with EWN’s technobyte, Aki Anastasiou, where he spoke of the African continent and the huge potential it harbors, see the video below:
