In India, Vijay Eswaran’s Green Goals At The Core of University At Ipoh City

Vijay Eswaran is a businessman, author, philanthropist and most importantly big dreamer who is never satisfied with the status quo. One of his latest big dreams is building the university that his company QI Group funds, into something bigger and better. Currently QI University-Perak is located in Ipoh City in buildings that the administration rents out, but Eswaran wants to have its own campus built in a new project titled QI City.

What this will also entail is having environmentally friendly power systems such as solar panels for each building as well as using a combination of wind and solar power for transportation systems. Eswaran’s whole career has consisted of big dreams like this one.

While Vijay Eswaran has always had big dreams and goals in his life, he has never forgotten values that his family taught him, including his father’s sayings of sacrificing for others. Eswaran’s bachelor’s degree was completed at the London School of Economics, and his master’s at Southern Illinois University.

He began learning multilevel marketing as a side hobby, and then in 1998 he decided to go all out in it when he returned to Malaysia. He didn’t have a lot of connections for funding, but he and his friend Joseph Bismarck had a lot of ingenious ways to raise the capital. Soon they had founded QI Group and moved its headquarters to Hong Kong. Its main subsidiaries are QNet, QI Asset Management, Q-Stride, and Quex Courier.

QNet sells a variety of products through ecommerce sales representatives who market those products to their own customers. QI Asset Management is a vacation property holdings company and financier for small businesses, while Q-Stride is a marketing research company and Quex Courier is a logistics chain. Eswaran gives back many of his company’s profits through RYTHM Foundation and the Vijayratnam Foundation, the latter of which is named for his father.

Eswaran’s books are largely about spiritualism and how it can shape business leaders. His bestselling book of all time is “In The Sphere Of Silence.” He’s made numerous business and philanthropy award lists including Forbes Asia’s 2011 Heroes of Philanthropy, the Top 50 Richest in Asia, and the 2012 New Global Indian award. He’s also a regular speaker at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
