Jd.com is an independent Chines Retailer founded by Richard Liu Qiangdong in 2004. Richard Liu is an Alumnus of the Renmin University of China. However, from an early age, he ventured into business thanks to special art learnt from his father who was a spices trader. Several establishments sadly fall apart but would revamp and get into another enterprise. He founded Jd.com when his business was at the verge of collapsing and resorted to online trading to dispose of his ware. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise as it became more profitable and hence Jingdong.
