Zhihu was founded in 2010 by Zhou Yuan as an invite-only Q&A site.

The site quickly became popular after business celebrities like Tencent's founder Pony Ma, Sogou CEO Wang Xiaochuan, and ex-head of Google China Kai Fu Lee joined.  

The platform opened to the public in 2013, and has since gathered over 43.1 million content creators posting over 315.3 million questions and answers.

Zhihu today has over 75.7 million monthly active users, and generated over $207.2 million in revenues in 2020.
