Ai Ching Goh: Introduction

Most startups fail in their first year. So to both make it through year 1 and make it through year 1 profitably and without any external investment is a big achievement. That’s the startup Ai Ching Goh, or Ching as we know her, is building. You may have heard of Piktochart already.

It’s a graphic design website that enables users to build everything from charts to infographics. Piktochart is a web app offering users without intensive graphic design experience to easily create professional-grade infographics and other communication materials. So popular is Piktochart, they now have over 5 million users.

Curious how she does it? Bet you are, stick around for the next 45 minutes as we talk to Piktochart CEO and founder, Ai Ching Goh.
