It’s not about the money, it’s about the dreams. It’s not only about the technology that will change the world. It’s about the dreams you believe that change the world.
Jack Ma, Alibaba founder
Jack Ma didn’t have any money when he started his company, Alibaba. But, from day one, he did have the goal to build the leading global internet company. He raised money from investors because he believed so strongly in his idea and was able to convince them to back his vision. Without a clear business model, or even turning a single cent in profit, Ma was nevertheless able to raise five million dollars from Syaru Shirley Lin, the head of the Chinese arm of the American investment bank Goldman Sachs. As soon as other investors heard about it, they also wanted to invest. They thought that if Goldman Sachs was backing Alibaba, there was no way they could go wrong. The origin of Jack Ma’s success wasn't money. His main asset was that he thought big.
