Vijay Eswaran is hailed as a hero in Malaysia. Through his hard work, education and vision he has risen from a working-class background to become one of Asia’ wealthiest men. But what has really made people love Eswaran is that he has used his multilevel marketing company, the QI Group, and his great wealth, to improve the lives of countless people.
Plus, he envisions using the company’s largess to build a world-class university and a city powered by the latest green technologies. It’s that kind of vision that has led Eswaran to the success he has enjoyed and endeared him to millions of people.
Born in Penang, Malaysia, Vijay Eswaran has a socioeconomics degree from the London School of Economics and an MBA from Southern Illinois University in the United States. It was while studying abroad that he became involved in multilevel marketing. After completing his education and spending a decade working abroad, Eswaran returned to Asia in 1998.
He was approached by the Cosway Group and offered the opportunity to start his own multilevel marketing company. Despite the fact he had very little finances or support and Asia was in an economic slump, Eswaran agreed to do it.

With a willingness to work hard and a clear vision of what the company could become, Eswaran founded the QI Group. He recruited and trained thousands of independent marketing executives, created a marketing plan and started to build the company.
Ten years later, the QI Group had annual sales of over $700 million and had grown from a small business concern based in the Philippines to a major corporation with offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. The company also has a presence in more than a dozen countries and a workforce numbering in the hundreds of thousands.
