Like many of his fellow 21st century Chinese billionaires, Xiaomi CEO the tech industry is where it made its $14.4 billion in assets. His smartphone manufacturing company, Xiaomi, became the fourth largest such company in the world and the largest in China, just three years after its founding.
Lei got his first opportunity in the industry shortly after finishing his college studies, when he joined Kingsoft, a Chinese software development company similar to Microsoft, as an engineer. At Kingsoft, Lei was, among other things, chief technology officer, president, CEO and successfully led the company until 2007 before resigning. In 2010, after spending a few years as a venture capitalist, he co-founded Xiaomi with a former Google China executive as a wealthy Chinese entrepreneur. Lei was appointed chairman of Kingsoft in 2011 and has formed a strong partnership between the two companies to provide cloud hosting services for his phones.
Xiaomi, often referred to as "China's Apple", is currently the second most valuable private tech company in the world, with a value of €46 billion $. But as its sales growth slows, experts are examining the applicability of Xiaomi's business model to overseas markets.
