Vijay Eswaran says that the basis of QI Group of companies was the QNET and the decision to join network marketing. At first, he was not sure if the idea would work but upon implementation of the idea, it worked like magic. Vijay saw there was a business opportunity that existed in the integration of traditional marketing methods and the new era of e-commerce.
He says that the ideas of starting a business had always been there during his campus days. However, the main reason he started the company was that he was going through some rough time financially.
Vijay Eswaran says that his main source of ideas is through interaction with people. He believes in consultation to ensure that his ideas are mature and can be implemented.
