[Entertainment] 3 Fun Facts You Never Knew About Xiaomi

Hello Mi Fans!

Today I’ll like to share 3 Fun Facts of Xiaomi that you probably never knew!

  • Fun Fact 1: The uniqueness of the Xiaomi Logo
If you look at the Xiaomi Logo, and invert the whole logo, it actually looks almost identical to the Chinese Character, (xing1), which means ‘heart’. As you guys know, Xiaomi prides itself strongly in being an extremely customer-centric company, where it focuses all its effort into engaging with its customers as well as bringing the best products to them at a price tag where everyone can afford. The customer’s ‘heart’ is at the very core consideration of the company

The company goes to the extent of putting the following phrase in Chinese on ALL of its employees’ pass, which states 因而米粉,所以小米, which translates into “The reason why Xiaomi exists is because of Mi Fans”.

  • Fun Fact 2: Xiaomi has a pet dog
Xiaomi actually adopted a stray dog into its premises. During the construction of its headquarter company building here in Beijing, there was a stray dog which constantly roamed around the premises. Even when the building was completed, the dog still stayed around. If I’m not mistaken, Lei Jun (Xiaomi CEO) recognised this dog, and eventually decided to adopt it under Xiaomi. Her name is 旺财, Wang Cai.

I must say that she is living a pretty comfortable life right now. Every month, there is a donation box near her kennel, where Xiaomi Employees donate to the box for her to cut her hair, as well as go for special dog-spa message treatments. If you do ever get a chance to visit Xiaomi HQ Beijing, you should definitely visit Wang Cai! (She is pretty fierce though)
  • Fun Fact 3: Mr Shou Zi Chew, a Singaporean, holds the position of Chief Financial Officer for Xiaomi

I’ll be honest – I actually did not know the Xiaomi’s CFO was actually a Singaporean. The following is a short biography of himself!
Mr. Chew graduated from University College London in 2006 with a B.S. in Economics and received his M.B.A. from Harvard Business School in 2010. From 2006 to 2008, he worked at Goldman Sachs’ Investment Banking Division. Mr. Chew joined DST Global in 2010 and has been involved in the firm’s investments in leading Chinese companies including Xiaomi,, Alibaba and Didi Dache. Mr. Chew joined Xiaomi as CFO in 2015, bringing unique investment insights and professional financial skills as an investment professional.  Mr. Chew currently leads Xiaomi’s Financial Management and Investment teams.

Do check you Mr Chew in an interview in the following link!
