Qnet: And The Man Behind It

Have you heard of the health and wellness brand called Olé? Yes, this is the same Olé that produces olive leaf extract. Have you heard of qLearn? It is learning on the go (as they offer their courses both online and on mobile phones) and they offer various courses from cybersecurity to business management. Did you ever wonder what company was behind the products and who leads that company? Below you will find a brief introduction of the who’s who and what’s what behind these products.


Qnet is a direct selling company that offers various products in many diverse markets. Olé and qLearn are only a few products they offer. Other products that they offer range from health and wellness, education, and technology to just name a few. Born in the 90’s, Qnet was first envisioned as a dream in a little apartment in Manila, Philippines in 1998. Two men, Vijay Eswaran and Joseph Bismark, made this dream into a reality. Today, Qnet has grown exponentially. Shortly after Qnet was created they had landed a contract securing a deal with FIFA World Cup and previous to that procured official rights to distribute commemorative coins for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
