Sounds like an interesting journey? You should read our book.

When we turned a decade old in October 2012, we thought we had a story to tell the world. A sweet story. And an unconventional one. So we wrote a book talking about the decade-long trials and tribulations of a company founded by a 17-year old with no business knowledge whatsoever and in a country not exactly known for software products.

It is a fun and inspiring read that takes you from cover to cover in an hour. There are the lessons we learnt along the journey, the mistakes we made and those hilarious stories that will keep us entertained for the rest of our lives.

Meet The Dude

They say there was a big bang. I do not know for sure. What I do know is that I was at the leading end of an explosion, and it wasn't pretty. But, the landing was, and so was the world I came into. Or at least the world that was coming into its own. I was there. I made it happen. I am The Dude.

The Dude* is the official FusionCharts mascot. His birth was a hat tip to our developers who tirelessly hack away at creating awesomeness. The Dude has grown to define our very own essence. Our curiosity that questions existing practices. Our pioneering spirit that does, learns, and improves. Our determination that never, never gives up...and then some. And the pure joy we share in making our world more delightful.

* With all due respect to El Duderino.
