What happens when you and your friend are thinking of building a company and the mobile photographs seem to be the best idea? Probably, if you’re crazy like Mike Krieger and Kevin Systrom, you end up building Instagram. The whole world now clicks pictures and shares on Instagram. This is a big deal in breakthrough ideas. Krieger is a symbolic system systems student, specialized in human-computer interactions from Stanford University. He had interned with the Microsoft PowerPoint team as a PM and at Fox Marks as a software developer. He was always a brilliant student, full of charm. He met Kevin at the Mayfield Fellows Program which taught both the successful and failed start-ups, offered internship programs and worked on the innovative ideas of the students.
After they both met, they started talking and Mike liked Kevin’s idea of helping start a company. Mike joined hands with Kevin and stated working on Kevin’s earlier project of Burbn. They built Burbn, which was a HTML5 web app which allowed users to check in locations and earn credits for posting photos and hanging out with friends.
