This informal talk and discussion will focus on the technical and non-technical challenges of building a company: infinut, and lessons learnt from it. infinut started when Ana built a game at a hackathon in Seattle to teach her daughter (then in Kindergarten) basic math concepts... come to the talk to hear the story of 5 years of building infinut.
