Co-founder of MINISO: Ye Guofu
Ye Guofu is a leader and visionary in his mastery of the trendy fast-fashion industry. During the period of Chinese economic transformation, he seized the opportunity to improve the social quality consumption patterns, establishing a brand new business model in China, which monopolizes China’s offline flow of customers. In 2013, he assembled a team of Japanese designers to be the shareholders and established MINISO. They have opened 1000 stores around the world within three years. By 2015, MINISO’s global revenue reached USD 750 million.
Ye Guofu believes the era for “good quality with low price” products in China has just begun. In this era, the actual value of a brand should be beneficial to millions of people. These very values and principles have induced the inception of MINISO.
