According to QBuzz, Vijay Eswaran first learned about MLM or multi-level marketing while studying for his masters degree and working in the United States for a marketing firm. After completing his MBA and getting some first hand experience in business and marketing, Vijay Eswaran went back home and found work at a major multi level marketing company called Cosway’s. His task at Cosway’s was to grow the company’s market and business in Malaysia.

Eventually, Vijay Eswaran decided to launch his own business venture and start his own company. He teamed up with Joseph Bismark, a colleague of his, and together they created the QI Group.
The QI Group was incorporated in Hong Kong in 1998. Using his experience with multi level marketing, management, economics and business, the QI Group was launched as a direct selling company that would expand into categories such as telecommunications, lifestyle brands, education, leisure, property development and logistics.
Vijay Eswaran and his QI Group faced big hurdles as it entered the direct selling field. The Asian markets had just seen an economic recession. The QI Group also lacked access to capital and connections that other firms had.
Still, the QI Group managed to expand with Vijay Eswaran leading the way. He managed to bring the QI Group to over $750 million dollars in annual profits. His success with the QI Group and direct selling led him to being named one of the top entrepreneurs in the Asia Pacific region and a leader in direct selling and marketing.
