We love getting to connect with innovators like Barbara Tien. Barbara is the Co-Founder & CEO of Ponga, a software that makes it simple to communicate visual ideas by anchoring conversations in pictures."We can live the internet life but you have to look around and realize how much things have transformed." Remember when the first iPhone was debuted? There was skepticism over the necessity of adding a camera to these phones. Now, it's hard to imagine a smartphone without that important feature.Through "the white-knuckle drama of growth," Ponga's small beginnings have grown into something incredible. Tien is hopeful Ponga will become just as necessary as a camera on the iPhone. This software now creates an approach where context can be created and permanently connected to a photo. The linkage this software provides gives users the opportunity to share their thoughts and receive responses all through a URL connected to a single picture.At Shadow Venture's annual Shadow Summit in Atlanta, Georgia, Barbara speaks on her experiences, her company, and where communications as a whole are headed in today's industry.
