About this event

This time we are twice as lucky. Not only do we get to talk to the founder and CEO of SYGIC, we will also have the honour to talk to Sygic's CMO with a very impressive track record. It may seem that Sygic took over the world of navigation instantly. It was the first-ever navigation app for iPhone available on the App Store. It immediately became the Top Grossing app in dozen countries. Several months later it became the 2nd company in the world to bring navigation to Android. A year later it was the world's first real 3D navigation. It's navigation is trusted by more than 30 million mobile users worldwide and it is the most popular offline navigation app for both iOS and Android. But it wasn't always so. The company has been developing first-class navigation software since 2004. Interestingly, they also have a strong B2B product portfolio, called Sygic Fleet. It was used by the Summer Olympic Games in London and many more big high-profile customers. Join us, get inspired and find out what is the story behind Sygic and what is their secret success recipe.
