The businessman I admire most was Dai Wei, founder and CEO of the ofo sharing bicycles. He used to study at Peking University, one of the two best universities in China and do a degree in finance.
After graduation, he could have gone to a commercial bank and become a millionaire at a very early stage of his life. But, instead, he volunteered to be a maths teacher in an impoverished town in Qinghai province. This article is from Laokaoya website. Do not copy or repost it. A year later, he came back to school and embarked on his master degree. During this time, he established ofo sharing bicycles with three co-founders. What I find interesting about this man is that every step of his life was beyond people’s anticipation. He chose to become a teacher instead of a banker and built a company when he was supposed to study.
The products of his company, little yellow bikes, which you can see all over the street, have dramatically changed the way of transportation. In the past, I used the bus or subway to travel to work or school. They were not bad, but could be a little frustrating, since I still had to walk a certain distance to get to my destination after I got off. And sometimes that can be a long way.
The yellow bikes alleviate this problem. Now when I reach the station, I pull out my cellphone, scan the QR code, unlock the bicycle, and ride to my destination. It is more convenient, simpler and much less physical-demanding. This is why I admire Dai Wei. His company actually benefits our life.
