GoPro: A ten-year overnight success

When the media talks about “A consumer phenomenon“, “the world’s hottest camera company” , “the number one best-selling camera in the world” … which company do you think they are talking about?

Sony? …. Canon? …. Kodak? (just kidding) …. no. They are talking about GoPro, the remarkable company founded by Nicholas Woodman, who has created America’s fastest growing imaging company, not by selling cameras, but by selling what he calls “life-capture devices“.
