5 Questions With Ciprian Borodescu (Appticles): Building the future of news interfaces in partnership with Google Digital News Initiative

In December 2017, Appticles announced the winning of a $50k grant from the Google Digital News Initiative, in support of building their new product, MorphL – AI-driven UI.

Ciprian and Alexandra, Appticles’s founders, are well-known figures in the Romanian startup ecosystem – first Romanian entrepreneurs to join Startup Bootcamp in 2010, organisers of the Bucharest JavaScript community, one of the biggest active meetups in Bucharest, speakers to dozens of events, from Startup Weekend to Wordcamp. We were curious to find out more about their experience getting the grant and their future plans, so we had a chat with Ciprian.
