Xiaoyin Qu dropped out of Stanford Graduate School of Business last year to start an event tech company with her co-founder Xuan Jiang. Together they started Run The World. Qu is a former senior product manager at Facebook, and before that worked at Instagram. Her inspiration behind starting the company was her mother, a pediatric neurologist in China. Her mother had the opportunity to go to an international medical conference where she met a doctor from Dubai, who shared the same rare patient case. That was ultimately a life-saving moment for the patient. Because of it, Qu wants to make events more accessible by creating an engaging virtual event platform. Run the World, an app-based meeting and event platform was launched in February 2020.
