Visual.ly: The New Infographics Startup [Video]
A new company is set to be launched by Mint.com's graphics team, as a "one-stop shop" for exploring, sharing and promoting visualizations.
A new data visualization startup is going to be launched by Stewart Langille and Lee Sherman, the men responsible for the graphics on Mint.com. Visual.ly will focus on transforming user data into infographics. It’s aim is to become a platform for exploring, sharing and promoting visualizations and also to provide a service connecting ‘data viz’ pros with the advertisers and publishers who want to use their content.
Visual.ly is being backed by 500 startups, founded by Dave McClure, which provides companies in their early stages with funding and mentoring. The video below tells you more about the company using, as you’d expect, some pretty neat infographics.
