As of the third quarter of 2019, Luckin Coffee’s stores grew by more than 200% year-on-year, the customer base climbed by 413%, the number of customers who returned each month increased by 398%, and the number of products purchased increased by 470%.

In addition, Microsoft is on the list of the most innovative companies with its instant messaging platform Teams. Last year, Teams beat rival Slake as the most popular workplace instant messaging app in 2019. In July last year, its daily users were 13 million, and in January this year, it exceeded 20 million. Currently, 91 of the 100 largest US companies use it.

Last year, Tesla delivered 367,500 electric vehicles, meeting the company’s target of at least 360,000 vehicles. This number is equivalent to twice the combined sales of Tesla cars in the previous two years. Today, Tesla has finally become a mass-market car manufacturer.

Tesla has demonstrated its marketing skills since its inception, but operational execution has been its weakness. Today, Tesla not only achieved record-breaking car deliveries in the fourth quarter of 2019, it also achieved profitability. Last year, Tesla also opened a new plant in China and has begun delivering cars to the world’s largest electric vehicle market.
