Jack Ma, the founder of the e-commerce empire Alibaba and a stakeholder at Alipay, is the richest man in China with an estimated net worth of $38.3 Billion. From being a famous business magnate to playing the role of investor and philanthropist, he is a self-made billionaire whose story is worth sharing around the globe.

Growing up poor in communist China, Jack Ma failed to clear his university-entrance exam twice and was rejected from several jobs, including KFC, before setting a successful foot on his third internet company, Alibaba.

Although as simple or straightforward as it may sound, he has had it hard in his early stages to get to where he is today. eSalesData has curated this story of Jack Ma, who has impacted the entire economy and internet industry of China more or less single-handedly.  His true rags-to-riches story will definitely be the one that inspires you in your darkest days.
