Founder / Chairman / CEO

Its market cap surpassing $60 billion, Ding’s NetEase is an internet technology company ranked as the second largest mobile publisher across iOS and Google Play globally (per App Annie). In China, it runs one of the country’s most popular online games, “Fantasy Westward Journey,” with 360 million registered players, and is also partnered with Blizzard Entertainment to make Chinese versions of “World of Warcraft, “Hearthstone” and “Overwatch.” Receiving an influx of online gamers sheltering at home when COVID-19 hit China at the start of 2020, Ding redirected NetEase’s extensive funds to Hubei Province where the pandemic began, distributing masks and sanitizer to citizens, offering free online courses to students and livestreaming events to aid independent musicians, a fitting philanthropic motion since the NetEase Cloud Music platform sports 800 million registered users.
