Alibaba group

Alibaba Group is a Chinese e-commerce company that has custumer-to-customer, business-to-customer, and business-to-business marketplaces. It also provides payment services, cloud computing services, and others.

The group was founded in 1999 by Jack Ma. Alibaba.com was launched as a B2B marketplace to connect Chinese manufacturers with overseas buyers.

Alibaba Group went public on 19 September 2014 in New York Stock Exchange as BABA. It is currently world's largest retailer and one of the largest internet companies.
