阿裡巴巴的掌舵人:馬雲介紹(雙語)

In the year 1999, with the help of more than a dozen friends who pooled

their resources - some $60,000 - Jack Ma, founded Alibaba, a

business-to-business online platform. No one at that time would have thought a

small start-up would initiate the world’s largest initial public offering (IPO)

on Wall Street, earning higher profits than those of interational giants like

Amazon.com and eBay combined.

1999年,數位朋友集資6萬美元,幫助馬雲創建瞭阿裡巴巴——一個B2B的在線交易平臺。當時,沒有人會想到這傢剛起步的小公司會在華爾街上市,並且融資額超過亞馬遜,eBay等國際巨頭,創下美國市場最大規模IPO紀錄。

China’s version of Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, according to AP. And his story of

starting an empire from scratch already makes him an inspiration to millions

across China.

馬雲的超凡魅力和活力,被美聯社昵稱為“瘋狂的傑克?馬”,將其視為中國的喬佈斯或比爾?蓋茨。而他白手起傢創建電商帝國的故事也早已激勵瞭數百萬中國人。

variety of cultural contexts through roadshows and TV interviews.
