Ning founded CreditEase, China's first and now the biggest peer-to-peer microcredit platform, in 2006 and has built the company into a 2,000 person organization with a service network covering more than 20 cities all over the country. The company has enabled tens of thousands of micro-entrepreneurs, students and parents, salary workers and extremely poor rural females to have access to credit. On the innovative platform, people with extra funds (lenders) lend to people with funding needs (borrowers), all based on credit. In April 2010 , world leading venture capital investor KPCB's China fund invested into CreditEase and became a strategic partner. This is the first investment in China's microcredit industry by mainstream international private equity funds, this landmark transaction demonstrates the tremendous social and financial value that microcredit is creating in China.   CreditEase recently got elected to become the council member of China Association of Microfinance (CAM). Prof. Xiaoshan Du is the Director in General of CAM. Ning was also elected as the Director of CAM Strategy Committee.   Ning is also an experienced venture investor and has in the past 10 years funded and advised on a number of startup companies many of which have grown into leaders in their respective sectors. He is a Board member of China Talent Group (China's leading Human Resources Outsourcing service provider), DHgate (leader in next generation cross-border e-commerce), Tarena (China's largest high-end IT training service provider) and Emay (China's largest mobile enterprise solutions provider). Ning is a sought-after speaker on subject matters ranging from microfinance, innovation, venture investment to corporate social responsibility.   Ning studied mathematics at Peking University and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. He is also a member of the Phi Beta Kappa honorary organization.
