In an era when a laptop or a PC is a quintessential for every individual, organization and home, it is not an easy task to compete with all the big computer manufacturers of the world and become one of the best. But for the CEO of Lenovo, Yang Yuanqing, that wasn’t a difficult task. Today, Lenovo, based in China, is the world’s largest personal computer vendor.Born to a couple of surgeons, Yang lived a life of poverty as his parents were heavily underpaid in the cultural revolution-era of the 60’s.
They still wanted him to study medicine and become a surgeon. Qing however, took a different path and decided that he will be studying computer science when a close family friend suggested it. He then went on to finish his undergraduate and graduate studies with computer science as his major.
