In 2014, he founded Kingwills™ Advanced Materials and aimed to become the most creative new materials company. After nearly 10 years of focusing on research and development on breathable waterproof material, the company successfully commercialized production in 2022.

They aim to leverage the role model of alumni and their resource advantages, as well as contribute to the cultivation of top innovative talents. Furthermore, they aspire to promote the construction of a world-class university and outstanding disciplines, and help China achieve self-innovation in advanced scarce materials.
