Founder and CEO, Teambition

Helping people collaborate more efficiently

Qi’s first entrepreneurial venture, a website that allowed patients to consult doctors online, failed partly because of the challenges posed by working collaboratively with his team. As a result, he set up Teambition, a cloud-based collaboration tool that allows colleagues to work together seamlessly. With customers including Huawei and Xiaomi, the company was acquired by Alibaba in early 2019.

Co-founder and CEO, WafaGames

Blazing a path for female gamers

Gong’s start-up has made waves in the gaming scene thanks to its distinctive game experiences, cutting-edge technologies and well-rounded, realistic female characters in an industry still rife with misogyny. Gong is also the founder of ai.Law, a robotics start-up that makes law accessible and affordable, which has now served three million people—67 per cent of them women. The serial entrepreneur was a child prodigy, becoming China’s youngest national chess champion at age 11, and has gone on to establish the non-profit World’s Youngest Voices to sponsor outstanding young students.
