Sina science and technology news on the evening of June 6, the 8th anniversary of Didi’s establishment, founder and CEO Cheng Wei delivered a speech. Cheng Wei said that after a certain degree of organization, new governance models and spirits are needed. Openness and transparency make complaints about future governance.
Cheng Wei also recalled the process of Didi’s creation. He said the biggest feeling was that it was not easy to go all the way. Now it’s still on the way, and it’s far from the time to celebrate. Eight years ago, Didi had only 800000 start-up funds. It started in a computer store in Zhongguancun e world. There was no money and no background. No one believed that we had the opportunity to change our travel. No one believed that we had the opportunity to live in this cruel battlefield to this day. Only a group of young people who had nothing but dreams wanted to do something.
In response to security issues, Cheng Wei said didi has experienced the cruelest battle and faced the most powerful opponents at home and abroad. It also faces the most stringent regulation of Internet companies ever. We’ve faced security incidents of great concern. We’ve had a sense of shame and suspicion in our hearts. We almost collapsed and never stood up again. These things have tempered our team and shaped everyone.
According to Cheng Wei, Didi is one of the largest flexible employment platforms in China and even in the world. Didi has 11.66 million online car drivers, 179500 Valet drivers, nearly 6000 two wheel car operation and maintenance masters, more than 3000 leasing companies around the ecology, more than 6 million related jobs in the upstream and downstream of the industrial chain, and a total of 18.26 million jobs.
According to the data provided by him, 21% of Didi’s online car Hailing drivers are the only source of income in the family, and 12% are veterans. This year, Didi just signed a new employment cooperation agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs for 15000 people. The Ministry of Veterans Affairs thanked Didi. Internet companies supported 50000 veterans this year, of which didi accounted for 15000. In addition, Didi platform has more than 300000 female online car drivers.
At the end of the speech, Cheng Wei read a sentence from Bezos: “people are eager to reach the peak, but the moment of reaching the peak is the beginning of falling, so don’t pursue the end, but always stand at the beginning.”
The following is the full text of Cheng Wei’s speech:
8-year-old Didi, always day one
Today, 8th anniversary, I prepared a lot of words to say, but I did not expect to make complaints about my mood after Tucao meeting. I giggle and still hear a lot of heartbreaking points. For example, the old staff said that they were frustrated to leave Didi, for example, the difficulty of the uniform work, and they didn’t get a lot of support.
We have pressure to make complaints about Tucao, but we do not want to be trapped in the sea of problems. Through Tucao meeting, we make complaints about problems in development with joy and self mockery.
What we do is travel. Everything happens on the road. It’s hard for us to be perfect one day. But today, we must make complaints about these problems in a spirit of truthfulness and not perfect. We don’t have to walk a road of entrepreneurship, but all of us face it bravely and smile together. Thank you for all the students who make complaints about Tucao.
When make complaints about the product, it is difficult to rely on only a few managers to make our products safer and make our experience better. Our drivers really feel respected and make complaints about the company.
Today, we see the safety problems, many problems reported by the outside world and the front line. We see the experience problems, millions of drivers and passengers are urging us, and the progress of our organization is the same.
To a certain extent, organizations need new governance models and spirit. Open and transparent is the future governance model. The spirit of Tucao encourages everyone to dare to make complaints about problems, and managers should have the strength to do so. Not make complaints about problems, but make complaints about them. To make complaints about the Tucao society, the anonymous network inside the network, and to give our whole open and transparent cultural point, this is the core and hope for our sustainable development in the future.
Bursting point make complaints about everyone.
Today is the eighth anniversary of Didi’s birthday. The biggest feeling is that it’s not easy to go all the way. Now we are still on the way, and it’s far from the time to celebrate. Eight years ago, we had only 800000 start-up funds. We started in a computer store in Zhongguancun e world. There was no money and no background. No one believed that we had the opportunity to change our travel. No one believed that we had the opportunity to live in this cruel battlefield to this day. Just a group of young people who had nothing but dreams wanted to do something.
We have faced countless battles without gunpowder and unimaginable competition. 800000 won’t take long. The cold start failed in a few months. Maybe 2012 will be over.
We have faced shake, Bumblebee, kuaidi and Uber. Some companies have been merged, some students are still Didi, and some people have left, but their dreams are still Didi, and their mission is also integrated with us. This is also the spiritual driving force for us to move forward. We can’t easily fall down. There are countless people’s efforts and dreams behind.
We have experienced the cruelest battles and faced the most powerful opponents at home and abroad. It also faces the most stringent regulation of Internet companies ever. We’ve faced security incidents of great concern. We’ve had a sense of shame and suspicion in our hearts. We almost collapsed and never stood up again. These things have tempered our team and shaped everyone. Just as refined steel is forged repeatedly between fire and water, we become strong in suffering. Our feelings and souls follow Didi, and eight years have come to this day.
There are so many difficulties along the way, but we believe that there is no impossibility, believe in the power of faith. How many times will the company’s motto become “the power of trust”. Try to be helpless. God will open a window for you. 8-year-old Didi, the most important thing is our mindset. Are we still the start-up company that just started eight years ago? We need to believe in our mission and eliminate all difficulties. We are the small strong who can’t fight to death, and we are the soldiers who will win in all battles.
Today, on our 8th birthday, we should be proud of didi and more than 10000 little orange people. We are didi worthy of our own pride. After I finished the Tucao, I should also make complaints about the achievements. Eight years ago, I took a taxi in the snow in Beijing and waited for half an hour. It was completely frozen. At that time, I was wondering how much I would pay if a car came.
Today, we are used to not waiting outside, but also have more choices. The peak daily orders of our four-wheel vehicles are more than 30 million, the data in June is the same as that of the same period last year, and the service of two wheel vehicles is more than 10 million. We are also China’s largest online taxi platform, driving agent, car rental platform, Internet gas platform, Internet charging platform, and a one-stop travel platform with more service people than Uber and China Railway Corporation. The dream that we only dare to think secretly when we set out is coming true.
But these are not as important as Didi’s other positioning: didi is one of the largest flexible employment platforms in China and even in the world. Today’s didi is not only a business and business model, but also a source of income for many people. For drivers and families behind, this income may be the rent of next month, the money for buying rice and oil, and the tuition for children. We should realize the pressure behind the driver’s hard work.
We have 11.66 million online car Hailing drivers, 179500 Valet drivers, nearly 6000 two wheel car operation and maintenance masters. There are more than 3000 leasing companies around the ecology. There are more than 6 million related jobs in the upstream and downstream of the industrial chain, bringing a total of 18.26 million jobs.
Among our drivers of online car hailing, 21% are the only source of income in our family, and 12% are veterans. This year, we just signed a new employment cooperation agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs for 15000 people. The Department of Veterans Affairs thanked us. Internet companies supported 50000 veterans this year, of which we accounted for 15000. In addition, Didi platform has more than 300000 female online car drivers.
Another case makes me very proud of Didi. Our product manager went to the countryside to study their travel problems. When he came back, he told me that he met an old grandmother waiting for a car to go to the county. She waited for an afternoon, but the car didn’t come. If it was dark, she would go back and wait tomorrow. This is the current situation in many rural areas. If you want to go to the county, you have to take a bus and wait a day. We are investing in solving such problems. It’s not a business model. I’m very proud of it.
We also went to poverty-stricken counties with some competent departments, such as Foping in Shaanxi Province and Zhijin in Guizhou Province. We are thinking about what we can do. One plan is to transport the blueberry bikes operated in big cities to them, and at the same time provide online operation support free of charge. Local users donate all the income of the single vehicle to local poverty Alleviation Office and other government departments for recruiting operation and maintenance masters to solve local problems I’m more proud of my job than breaking new orders.
During the epidemic, the income of drivers was affected. We set up a driver assistance mechanism to help drivers when they are in difficulty and have no way, and the power of the platform to help them, so that they can’t go nowhere.
Last year, I was most impressed by the orange fruit project. Last year, three of the kids who drive online car hailers went to Tsinghua University, four to Peking University, many to famous universities, and didi gave them scholarships. I told the children at the orange fruit project award ceremony that we should strive to win the first place, because your parents stepped on the accelerator today, and it’s not easy to be sad behind you. The second is to be grateful for your life, to respect your parents and not look down on them.
In the past eight years, what I am most proud of is not only our achievements, but also our efforts, because there are Didi, who can do something for the industry, for the society and for millions of families. When the enterprise is large, it is not a large-scale enterprise, but a large-scale enterprise. If we have Didi, we can make the world better and warmer. These are also the driving forces of our continuous struggle.
I’m proud of Didi, but also because didi has the opportunity to become a world-class company coming out of China. We have 2000 colleagues overseas, our services have landed in 10 countries outside China, and are highly praised. We have solved the employment problem of 600000 people in Brazil, and pasted more than 10000 protective films in Mexico These are just the beginning. We have the opportunity to become a company founded by Chinese people and made the world a better place. This is our star sea.
Today, we start anew, which is different from the previous years. We have a stronger sense of security. We insist on experience first. Our organization has been tempered. Countless suffering has tempered us. Instead of dying, we have high morale! This shows that our soul and spirit are tenacious, which is Didi’s most precious wealth.
If you want me to say what is the most important thing today? It is also the struggle of all the little orange people in the past eight years. Thank you and be proud of you! Many little orange people have experienced marriage and children in Didi, and didi has passed the important stage of life together. Because didi is respected and proud by the outside world, because didi is ashamed of difficulties, and enjoys the joy of success in Didi, and also bears all kinds of grievances. Today, it’s very important that we are all the same people who try to do things well.
It’s hard for didi to promise that everyone can get a promotion and a raise, and there will be many challenges in the future. We try to make Didi’s future as imaginative and opportunistic as the previous eight years, and give you many possibilities. Didi’s water must live, and everyone must grow up in Didi. When facing problems, it is not to sulk, but to stand up bravely and build a better didi with all colleagues.
If you feel that didi has some small improvements today, it is better Didi. There is no best, only better. In addition to thanking more than 10000 little orange people, I also want to thank the old tangerine peel who left. Everyone’s common efforts have condensed into today’s drops. The Jianghu is far away, and the friendship is still there.
We make complaints about users, especially those who make complaints about Tucao on the Internet, because Tucao is expecting us to get better. Thank the driver, master, the 4000 people’s commendation meeting in the past few days, we are connected with a master. Most of Didi’s colleagues are well prepared and dressed to attend. The best Internet car Hailing driver in Wuhan campaign didn’t have gorgeous language. He just stopped at the side of the road and said a few words. After that, he had to work. I was touched by this. We must serve these respectable drivers well.
We want to thank our partners for trusting and supporting us all the time; we want to thank investors for their support and for believing in our dreams. We also need to become successful commercial companies, so that we can invest profits in future scientific and technological research and development, invest in future business layout, let the company have development, let the organization have development, and then we can have money to improve the life of the struggling people.
Today we celebrate our birthday, be proud of ourselves, and be grateful for the past. We need to look forward to 0188 to make our trip better.
Someone asked me, did you say eight years ago to make travel better today? I think we may just make the trip 10% better. There are still many people complaining, many problems to be solved, and our mission is still star sea. In 2015, I said that if we are a book, we have only written one or two chapters now. Now, we still have a lot of possibilities and imagination, and still have a lot of dreams on the way.
We celebrate our birthday today, not only to encourage each other, but also to remember our spirit on the day of departure, day 1 spirit.
Some people say that there are only two types of companies, day 1 companies: on the first day of starting a business, people don’t believe what you believe, there are no resources, only challenges and no turning back. Day 2’s company: small achievements, share to guard, huge organization, complex communication, bureaucratic bloated.
Bezos has a saying that I read to you here: “people are eager to reach the peak, but the moment of reaching the peak is the beginning of falling, so do not pursue the end, but always stand at the beginning.”
This is our spirit. The most important thing for didi to start again is not the dismantling of strategic campaigns, not resources and strength. It’s whether we can believe in our mission with the same original intention as when we started eight years ago, and never give up on any big difficulty. The colleagues around us are the rare companions in our life, and our comrades in arms. We want to become the company of always day one.
Happy birthday make complaints about your 8 years old birthday.
Today, I laughed and laughed, cried and cried, and accepted the Tucao, facing the problem, and make complaints about the achievements we made objectively. Today is our birthday. We should not only celebrate our birthday, but also find our original heart. We can also fight together as we did on the first day.
Love Didi, love everyone.
