 After Jack Ma finally comes up with all of his rejections and failures. He decided to visit the United States in 1995, for a government project related to highway construction. At that time, Jack Ma first knew there on the Internet and computers.

 Computers were fairly rare in China, given the high costs of acquiring a computer and the Internet, and neither the Internet nor e-mail messages existed. The first word that he searched for in the "mosaic" browser was beer, and at that time he found a lot of information about beer in many countries and in many languages, but the amazing thing that changed his thinking is that he did not find any information in the Chinese language, and this is what surprised him, because a country of this size is like China and not You find any information about him, he continued to search in general about China, but he did not find anything also, how? And why? . All of these questions were on Jack Ma's mind

He had a giant idea in his mind, which is to compete with eBay and other American sites

 In April of 1995, Jack Ma, his wife, and some of his friends managed to collect $ 20,000. In order to establish an Internet company whose job is to establish corporate websites, they named the company China Yellow Pages

 One day, when Jack Ma was in a cafe in San Francisco, he asked one of the waitresses there, "What do you think of when you hear the name Ali Baba?" She replied: "Open sesame."

Here Jack shouted: "This is the name I'm looking for."

 Jack's choice of the name Ali Baba was not random. He wanted a name that people would associate with the phrase “Open Sesame,” like the one we read about in the story of Alibaba and the Forty Thieves, and it is the slogan of the Alibaba website, which opens the door to the cave of China's hidden treasures.

His home was the headquarters of his company

 Jack Ma took his home as headquarters for Alibaba, and in the same year he founded it, he was able to obtain financing in the amount of $ 5 million. In 2000 he succeeded in obtaining another $ 20 million in financing

 In September 2014, a report was released that raised the value of Alibaba to 153 billion in the New York Stock Exchange stock market. Today, Alibaba has become one of the largest companies in the world, but has turned into a holding company and includes 9 large companies under it.

 In November 2012, the volume of commercial transactions on "Alibaba" exceeded one trillion yuan, making Jack what the nickname trillion is what literally means in Chinese the marquis of trillion yuan.

 The biggest day in Alibaba's history is Chinese Singles' Day, an answer to Valentine's Day that is supposed to celebrate the country's bachelor classes. In 2016, the site recorded close to $ 25 billion in sales in just 24 hours. And two billion dollars in the first two minutes of the annual shopping day in China.

This is because of the severe pollution in China. He decided to leave his position as an executive director at Alibaba in 2013 to take care of the environment, its pollution and so on.

He also told the Financial Times:

 "During the next twenty years we will face many health problems related to water and air safety, so I will invest a lot of my time and money to address these issues in China."
