Growing from 0 to 20 million users starting from Latvia. This is the story of Infogr.am in a nutshell! After making customized data visualisations for the European Commission, the weekly analytical mazine Ir and the Latvian Institute, Uldis Leiterts & Raimonds Kaze, the startup’s Co-Founders, decided to empower people to tell stories with data.
With a rising demand for interactive infographics, they developed a data visualisation software for non-designers that is now used by millions of people & businesses worldwide, including The Huffington Post, Amnesty International or BBC. How did they turn an idea into one of the most successful companies ever born in Latvia? What were their biggest challenges and struggles? Uldis Leiterts, Co-Founder of Infogr.am, took the stage at How to Web Conference 2015 and answered all these (and many other) questions in a fireside chat moderated by Bogdan Iordache, Co-Founder of How to Web.
