Teams of researchers, real estate developers, government agents and Dr. Vijay Eswaran have already started building a place they hope will be a shining example of being able to run on renewable energy. This place is QI City, a conglomeration of residential and commercial properties primarily built for the already existing QI University which has been running in Ipoh City in Malaysia for the time being. But there will be other activities taking place in this unique part of Perak, and Eswaran has been working hard to have more done about environmental activism over the years. He hopes this development will only be the start of a clean world initiative.
Vijay Eswaran is the founder and Executive Chairman of QI Group Ltd., a direct selling company based in Hong Kong that has offices spread throughout Asia and the Middle East. Eswaran’s family is originally from India though they lived in Malaysia for most of his childhood, so he claims dual citizenship for both countries. Eswaran studied at the London School of Economics and spent time working in construction, cab driving and business consulting before coming across a multilevel marketing opportunity that he succeeded with. He decided he would start his own multilevel marketing business since he realized it was the kind of business that could help others as well when he succeeded, so in 1998 QI Group was formed and QNet became its chief sales subsidiary. Eswaran also founded QI Asset Management, Q-Stride Business Analytics and Quex Courier along with the QI University partnership with the Malaysian government.
Philanthropy and spiritualism have also been a huge part of Vijay Eswaran’s work over the years, and he has given to needy communities and helped underprivileged special needs children through his RYTHM Foundation over the years. He was even cited in Forbes Asia’s 2011 “Heroes of Philanthropy” edition for his generosity. Eswaran is also an author of books that deal with spiritualism and introspection, and he covers meditation and dieting in his books including bestseller “In the Sphere of Silence.” He is also a regular speaker at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
