What Vijay Eswaran’s Company Does That Has Changed Asia

Vijay Eswaran has been using multilevel marketing successfully since his company QI Group was founded in 1998, and he’s tapped into many health and wellness products that have sold successfully across India, Malaysia, Japan and many other Asian markets. QI Group’s direct sales are made primarily through QNet and QiStyle, but it also is the holdings company for QI Asset Management and QI University Perak.

Through its ecommerce platforms QNet sells all products through independent resellers who can signup at QNet’s website and become authorized resellers. They can also earn bonuses for referrals and become part of QNet’s rewards program.

Vijay Eswaran took a few different career turns before settling on multilevel marketing. He was born in Malaysia and traveled about the country as a young man. He was one of the top-level students in his class and was accepted to the London School of Economics where he completed his bachelor’s degree.

He didn’t know what he was going to do right away so for a time he drove cabs, harvested grapes and worked in construction. But he saved up his earnings to attend graduate school at Southern Illinois University and then worked for several companies including Synaptics and IBM. He had started becoming involved in some direct sales endeavors on the side and looked into the profession as a career. Read more: Five Minutes With Dr. Vijay Eswaran, Executive Chairman, QI Group

Eswaran came back to Malaysia in 1998 and later met Joseph Bismarck who became his partner, and though they didn’t have a lot of capital to work with they determined to startup their own multilevel marketing company.

They centralized the headquarters in Hong Kong and that became the start of QI Group. The coming years would face turbulent economic times and some opposition from disgruntled shareholders, but Eswaran and Bismarck stayed the course and turned out billions in profits.

Vijay Eswaran is also Chairman of RYTHM Foundation, a philanthropy that offers aid to disabled children and communities affected by disasters across Asia. He’s an author and speaker who has attended and spoken at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland. He also teaches courses on spiritual practice in the workplace and has authored several books on it including In The Sphere of Silence.
