Goh Ai Ching - Piktochart
Bootstrapped Founder Builds a Global Product
This week we are joined by Goh Ai Ching of Piktochart, which is an all-in-one tool to easily create infographics, presentations, reports, posters, and videos online either from scratch or by editing a broad range of templates.
This was a great conversation to discuss the pathway of a bootstrapped founder. We talk about what led to the founding of the company, building in the early days, and how the go to market has evolved over time. We touch on competition with Canva and what the differentiating factor is.
I’d love to know what you took away from this conversation with Goh Ai Ching. If you’d like to be considered as a guest or have someone that you’d like to hear me speak to, drop me a message.
