FusionCharts (FC) came into being because as a teenager Pallav Nadhani, now 27, hated asking his dad for pocket money. He was all of 17 when he discovered that making excel charts interactive and fun could earn him big bucks. In 2002, Nadhani launched the first version of FC using macromedia flash that made charts interactive and he hasn’t looked back since. With 85% of Fortune 500 companies, including IBM, Coca-Cola, Cisco, Intel, Apple, and the US government as its customers, FC hasn’t felt the need to raise money from outside investors.
