Half the world is enough

AVAST Software founders (Prague, 2010)

A few months ago we posted this

article on AVAST Software founders Pavel Baudiš and Eduard Kučera

to our Written About Us page (a list of summaries and links to recent press coverage), but I wanted to bring attention to it here, as well.

Containing a brief history of what drove the two men to create software amid major political turmoil and economic transitions (i.e., regained Czechoslovak independence), the article highlights some of the problems they faced as a fledgling company in a new global environment. As well, it points to the difficult choices they made in terms of an innovative business model, which helped them to attain roles as world-class leaders in the antivirus industry.

For those who may wonder what AVAST Software’s plans are for 2011 (and beyond)… pay special attention to the last paragraph. ;)
