The genesis and growth of J.D.com
The start of the now leading e-commerce in China was like a miracle. He did not have that idea in his mind. He was, about to give up owing to multiple failures of the two business he had started.
He began a restaurant while still in college to cater for his upkeep and the medication of his then-ailing grandmother. The company failed because Richard Liu had no enough time to attend to it based on the fact that he was a student and he had to concentrate on his studies.
After the failure, he began a magneto-optical product shop in 1998. It started as a small-scale enterprise. He called it Jing Dong after combining the last digit of his then girlfriend’s name with his. The business grew drastically, and by the time the SARS came in, Richard Liu had opened up to 12 stalls.
When the ARS prolonged, Liu was advised by his then manager to begin an online platform. Now the business is doing very well with 24-hour service delivery and deals in electronics and consumer goods both in China and the international market.
