Arnold (Cairui) Fu, an accomplished Chinese entrepreneur, is the founder, chairman, and CEO of Hujiang. “I never dreamed of being a millionaire”, Fu has stated, “I simply dedicated myself to making education easier, fairer, and more enjoyable through the internet”. This is also the mission Hujiang has been striving to fulfill over the last fifteen years.
As a notable young entrepreneur and one of the most successful student-turned-businessmen in China, Fu has also been listed as one of WISE and the Global EdTech Index’s Top 50 ‘Makers & Shakers’.
Fu has long been devoted to an educational charity program called the Hu+(Hujia) Project. Initiated by his company, Hujiang, this project aims to change the traditional education model through the use of internet technology. The Hu+ Project both improves and optimizes the sharing of high-quality educational resources. With the support of the public and private sectors, many Chinese rural schools are now offered access to Hujiang’s online educational products and services.
Over the past 15 years, Fu has clung to the idea that online education is crucial in promoting fair education across the board by creating more equal access to educational resources. It is an idea that he and Hujiang will continue to adhere to for many years to come.
