Dating way back to the third century, the Mind Map is a creativity technique which has survived millennia.
Our CEO, Chris Griffiths, the world’s leading expert in using Mind Mapping in business, wrote Mind Maps for Business with Tony Buzan (the inventor of the Mind Map) which was translated into over 15 languages.
In 2006, Chris brought the hand-drawn Mind Map into the digital world for the first time with iMindMap.
This year, we launched Ayoa – a cloud-based Mind Mapping tool designed to boost not only creativity but productivity, too.
