Alibaba’s Jack Ma spent 10 years preparing for his retirement

When Alibaba’s founder Jack Ma retired from the company last month, it was not a decision he took lightly. Speaking at the Forbes Global CEO Conference on Tuesday, Ma said he was first awoken to the idea of retiring in 2004, when a venture capitalist told him he wasn’t “qualified as CEO.” But it was in 2009, when the company hit its 10 year anniversary, that his succession planning began in earnest. “That day I started to think I should prepare for my retirement,” Ma told audiences in Singapore.

Alibaba's Jack Ma spent 10 years preparing for his retirement

When Alibaba’s founder Jack Ma retired from the company last month, it was not a decision he took lightly.

The 55-year-old announced in September 2018 that he would step down as executive chairman in 12 months’ time, bringing an end to his 20 years at the helm of the tech giant. But, he recently revealed, it was a plan he’d had in mind for more than a decade.

Speaking at the Forbes Global CEO Conference on Tuesday, Ma said he was first awoken to the idea of retiring in 2004, when a venture capitalist told him he wasn’t “qualified as CEO.” But it was in 2009, when the company hit its 10 year anniversary, that his succession planning began in earnest.

“That day I started to think I should prepare for my retirement,” Ma told audiences in Singapore.

“That day I decided my 20 year anniversary, the year 2019, September 10, will be the day I’ll leave,” he said.

These are the world’s greenest commuter cities

Three of Asia’s biggest business hubs have emerged as the world’s most environmentally-friendly commuter cities. Those cities ranked especially highly due to commuters’ general tendency to use public transport or walk to work in the three densely populated metropolises.

These are the world's greenest commuter cities

Three of Asia’s biggest business hubs have emerged as the world’s most environmentally-friendly commuter cities.

Tokyo, Beijing and Singapore topped the charts for green commuting in a new study by data insights company, Kantar.

Those cities ranked especially highly due to commuters’ general tendency to use public transport or walk to work in the three densely populated metropolises.

The study questioned 20,000 people in 31 cities globally about their commuting habits.

Seoul, which placed seventh, was the fourth Asian city to make the top 10. It was joined by four European cities — London, Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Moscow — which are renowned as cycle cities with expansive public rail networks. Nairobi and Sao Paulo rounded out the list.

No U.S. city made it to the top ranks. A separate 2017 study found that the average American spends a total of 52 minutes per day commuting, with the vast majority — about 85% — using a private car or car pool. Just over 5% used public transport, while 2.8% walked or 0.6% cycled.

Alibaba Group thwarts 300 million hack attempts per day, founder Jack Ma says

Chinese technology giant Alibaba Group is the target of some 300 million attempted cyber attacks per day, according to the company’s founder and former executive chairman, Jack Ma. “For Alibaba Group, we have over 300 million hacking attempts per day. We don’t have even one problem,” Ma said at the Forbes Global CEO Conference in Singapore on Tuesday. By way of contrast, embattled Chinese technology giant Huawei is subject to around 1 million daily cyberattacks, according to its security chief.

Alibaba Group thwarts 300 million hack attempts per day, founder Jack Ma says

Chinese technology giant Alibaba Group is the target of some 300 million attempted cyber attacks per day, according to the company’s founder and former executive chairman, Jack Ma.

Ma said he was “proud” that despite the tirade of subterfuge, Alipay — the group’s payments arm which reports close to 1 billion users and processes $50 billion worth of transactions per day — has yet to lose “one cent” to hackers.

“For Alibaba Group, we have over 300 million hacking attempts per day. Every day. But we deal (with) it. We don’t have even one problem,” Ma said at the Forbes Global CEO Conference in Singapore on Tuesday.

By way of contrast, embattled Chinese technology giant Huawei is subject to around 1 million daily cyberattacks, according to its security chief. Until now, other technology companies have been less forthcoming in revealing their cyber attack vulnerabilities.

Almost two-thirds of workers say they would trust a robot over their manager

Much talk of workplace automation paints a picture of an apocalyptic stand-off between humans and their robot replacements. In fact, as many as 64% of workers say they would trust a robot over their manager, based on the joint study from U.S. technology company Oracle and research firm Future Workplace.

Almost two-thirds of workers say they would trust a robot over their manager

Much talk of workplace automation paints a picture of an apocalyptic stand-off between humans and their robot replacements.

But the ultimate relationship may be much more harmonious, according to a new report, which suggests that many employees are embracing artificial intelligence (AI) in the workplace.

In fact, as many as 64% of workers say they would trust a robot over their manager, based on the joint study from U.S. technology company Oracle and research firm Future Workplace. Meanwhile, more than half say they have already turned to a robot for advice instead of their manager.

The phenomenon is especially pronounced in Asia, where employees expressed a disproportionate distrust in their human colleagues when compared to technology. For example, 89% of workers in India and 88% of those in China admitted to trusting robots over their managers.

The two gargantuan labor forces were joined by workers in Singapore (83%), Brazil (78%), Japan (76%), Australia and New Zealand (58%), the U.S. (57%), the U.K. (54%) and France (56%) in trusting robots over their managers.

The lesson from Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey that inspired these students to build a multimillion start-up

Siu Rui Quek had always been entrepreneurial. As a teen, he would fuel his passion for technology and earn extra cash buying and selling gadgets online. But it was a lesson learned in his early twenties from enterprising icons Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey that set him on course for the big times. That lesson? Know your mission. Quek is co-founder and CEO of $550 million online consumer marketplace Carousell. He started the business with his college friends Marcus Tan and Lucas Ngoo back in 2012 after they were inspired by talks from the top tech talents during an internship in Silicon Valley. And, even today, he says those presentations played a vital role in shaping Carousell’s success.

I always joke that I have a mentor, which is Mark Zuckerberg, but it’s only one-way. Siu Rui Quek co-founder and CEO, Carousell

“The one thing that we really learned and took away,” Quek told CNBC Make It, “is to be absolutely mission-oriented and mission-first.” “This idea of being mission-first just helps people transcend personal egos (and) helps create collaboration,” he said. To be sure, the founders did not mentor Quek and his friends directly. “I always joke that I have a mentor, which is Mark Zuckerberg, but it’s only one-way — I know him but he doesn’t know me,” Quek said.

But, by watching their presentations and studying their style, Quek said he and his co-founders were inspired to think about the big picture and how they could use technology to solve big issues. “I think the one commonality all of them had was just this whole fascination for using technology to solve problems and make a big impact,” said Quek. For Carousell, that meant building a platform to simplify buying and selling online, which, Quek said, plays into the company’s wider mission to “inspire every person in the world to start selling.”

Returning to Singapore after their internship, they did just that, focusing initially on items like electronics before expanding to categories including clothing, property, autos and even jobs. Carousell works like other online classified platforms, and lets users buy and sell unwanted items online by uploading a photo and the relevant details. In that way, it is similar to sites like eBay and Craigslist, which Quek cited as early inspirations. However, right from the start, Quek said the trio were determined to make their Southeast Asia-centric model a mobile-first solution. They believed it would simplify the process and better suit regional users, for whom smartphones had largely leapfrogged desktop computers. “We were really hooked to using the iPhone as our main computer,” said Quek. “I think we got spoilt by the simplicity of apps like Instagram. We wanted something that was familiar to us, something very mobile-first: Snap to sell, chat to buy, something very social.”

That simplistic approach proved popular with users. Within three days of launching in August 2012, the app was ranked second among the top free lifestyle apps in Singapore. It’s a strategy Quek said is fundamental to the company’s mission of inspiring “every person in the world to start selling and buying.” To help with that, Carousell now draws heavily on artificial intelligence (AI) to speed up the selling process. Image recognition, for instance, will automatically identify items and apply the appropriate categories and tags. Ultimately, Carousell wants to reduce listing times from 30 seconds to just three. “We’re doing a lot of things around AI,” said Quek. “We want to make selling even simpler, so today you can already take a photo, your category will be suggested, your title will be suggested, your price will be suggested.”

Why this investor took a $28 million gamble on a serial failed entrepreneur

In fact, for Altos Ventures, it was a winning combination. Within hours of meeting Lee, the managing director of Altos Ventures Han Kim, wanted in. Altos Ventures was the first investor in Lee’s now-$2 billion money transfer app, Toss. At that time, in 2014, such peer-to-peer (P2P) transfer services lacked regulatory approval in South Korea, which meant they were effectively illegal. But, in Lee, Altos Ventures saw an entrepreneur who was determined to fight the fight to reinvent the system.

Why this investor took a $28 million gamble on a serial failed entrepreneur

On paper, Seunggun Lee was a risky investment: A former dentist with eight failed businesses under his belt and a legal battle on his hands.

But that wasn’t enough to put off investors.

In fact, for Altos Ventures, it was a winning combination. Within hours of meeting Lee, the managing director of Altos Ventures Han Kim, wanted in.

Altos Ventures was the first investor in Lee’s now-$2 billion money transfer app, Toss. The South Korean venture capital firm initially invested 1 billion Korean won (around $1 million at that time) in the business five years ago, when Toss was barely off the ground. Altos has since topped up that funding with a further $27 million.

At that time, in 2014, such peer-to-peer (P2P) transfer services lacked regulatory approval in South Korea, which meant they were effectively illegal.

But, in Lee, Altos Ventures saw an entrepreneur who was determined to fight the fight to reinvent the system.

“We saw a large opportunity and a trend that was happening outside of Korea. Money transfer was becoming very big in the U.S. and China,” Altos Ventures partner Moonsuk Oh told CNBC Make It, referring to similar apps like PayPal’s Venmo and Alibaba’s Alipay.

Indra Nooyi has advice for stamping out workplace bias

“I worked harder than anyone else … so that people didn’t look at me as a woman, a woman of color, an immigrant,” the 63-year-old said recently at Women’s Forum Asia in Singapore.

Times have since changed, she noted. Women and minorities are now better represented in universities and workplaces, and many companies say they are striving for greater diversity and inclusion.

But there remains a long way to go, continued Nooyi, who called on fellow business leaders to take a more active role in forwarding progress.

Those five travel hotspots attracted over one-fifth (22%) of all overnight visitors to the region last year, Mastercard’s annual Asia Pacific Destinations Index found Wednesday. They also received the region’s greatest travel spending, bringing in over a quarter (25.2%) of all travel expenditure among the 161 cities studied.

The region’s top four travel destinations in 2018 remained unchanged from the previous year. For the ninth year running, Bangkok (1) and Singapore (2) retained their strongholds, welcoming 22.8 million and 14.7 million overnight international arrivals respectively.

Kuala Lumpur (3), the region’s front-runner in 2009, edged in on Singapore with 13.8 million travelers, but retained third place. Meanwhile Tokyo remained the fourth most popular city, attracting 12.9 million guests.

South Korea’s capital Seoul was the only new entrant to the top five destinations in 2018, having been overtaken by the Thai island of Phuket the previous year.
