WHY HER? Three years ago, Wei­wei launched a de­cep­tively sim­ple startup: a bi­cy­cle-pool­ing app that would al­low users to bor­row bikes and re­turn them to any stand in the city, all for a one-off fee of 299 yuan. Now Mo­bike is in more than 200 cities and was re­cently ac­quired by Meituan-di­an­ping for US$2.7 bil­lion, with Wei­wei re­main­ing as CEO. THE NEXT FRON­TIER In­dian cities such as Ban­ga­lore and Delhi are Mo­bike’s next tar­get, which may present a chal­lenge as the cities aren’t known for their bike use. How­ever, Mo­bike is con­fi­dent it can win res­i­dents over.
