In 2017, Dai was recognized by Fortune China as “40 Under 40 Business Elite” and “30 Under 30 Asia”. Dai has been very mindful of social responsibilities since he was a student. After college graduation, different from most graduates who chose to join big firms and earn a decent salary, Dai spent one year as a volunteer teacher in the poverty-stricken region in Qinghai, China. This experience made him believe that education is the only way to lift people out of poverty and change their destiny. Inspired by this volunteering experience, Dai launched two social campaigns called “West China Athletic Development” and “Chinese Engine of Dreams”, both focused on improving education in West China and helping alleviate poverty there.
