Su Hua

CEO and Co-founder of Kuaishou

Su Hua quit his PhD studies at China’s prestigious Tsinghua University. In 2006, he joined Google as an engineer working on ads search. In October 2008, he left Google and started over 33 projects but all failed.

A year later, he joined Baidu and worked for over two years as a core engineer and team leader for its search engine marketing system Fengchao. He left Baidu to establish search engine startup One Box that was acquired by Alibaba.

In June 2013, Su was introduced to Cheng Yixiao who had already founded GIF Kuaishou in 2011. They decided to join forces and pivot GIF Kuaishou into a video-sharing app, with Su as CEO and Cheng as CPO.
