Zhang Xin’s rise from a poor childhood under Chairman Mao to one of the world’s top 10 self-made women is a story of hard work, focus and determination to succeed. She started working as a factory worker as a teenager in Hong Kong, saved up her money to get a Hong Kong passport to relocate to Britain where, helped by scholarships and grants, she won a university place first at Sussex, then at Cambridge to complete a masters degree.
Today she is co-founder and CEO behind SOHO China, a property empire which she spent the last two decades building with her husband Pan Shiyi. Read more about how she bet on “uber for offices” in China.
