Great vision from a simple idea

Leo, CEO of Pikurate when he was studiying in US

When Leo was taking an MBA course in the US,

Leo was having some problems. Visa, english, tax⋯ Everything was new and difficult. Leo searched hard to solve them and fortunately, he was able to study abroad well.
But he faced another problem when he tried to help a friend who had a similar problem. The information he eagerly sought was scattered here and there, and most of it was completely forgotten.
Then, Leo thought. “Why do we have to start from scratch whenever we research something?” He imagined a world where people can share the information that they already researched with others, and began to observe the people around him.

Like Leo, many US college students

who research a lot, share the issue of managing knowledge. Some people saved links on a digital document and copied and pasted it whenever needed. Others captured and delivered long URLs. There wasn’t a hub for collected information, so people had to search for the information they already saved before.
Leo started creating a knowledge curation platform where people can efficiently gather knowledge and discover others’ knowledge collections. That was the beginning of Pikurate.
Pikurate now creates a platform where people can save information and ideas through links that can be accessed freely. Leo's idea is now becoming a reality with the Pikurate crew.
