The Micromax Story Chinese mobile phones had just started coming to the Indian households.
History[ edit ] Founding and early history[ edit ] Liu Chuanzhi founded Lenovo on 1 November with a group of ten engineers in Beijing withyuan. The Chinese government approved Lenovo's incorporation on the same day. Eleven people, the entirety of the initial staff, attended.
Each of the founders was a middle-aged member of the Institute of Computing Technology attached to the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The group rebuilt itself within a year by conducting quality checks on computers for new buyers. Lenovo soon started developing a circuit board that would allow IBM-compatible personal computers to process Chinese characters.
This product was Lenovo's first major success. Lenovo also tried and failed to market a digital watch. Liu said, "Our management team often differed on which commercial road to travel.
This led to big discussions, especially between the engineering chief and myself. He felt that if the quality of the product was good, then it would sell itself. But I knew this was not true, that marketing and other factors were part of the eventual success of a product.

Lenovo's IPO was massively over-subscribed. Proceeds from the offering were used to finance sales offices in Europe, North America and Australia, to expand and improve production and research and development, and to increase working capital.
They had little understanding of the rules and responsibilities that went along with running a public company. Before Lenovo conducted its first secondary offering inLiu proudly announced the company's intent to mainland newspapers only to have its stock halted for two days by regulators to punish his statement.
This occurred several times until Liu learned that he had to choose his words carefully in public. The first time Liu traveled to Europe on a "roadshow" to discuss his company's stock, he was shocked by the skeptical questions he was subjected to and felt offended.
