Abhishek Goel, CEO & co-founder of CACTUS, said that he was excited about this acquisition as it is perfectly aligned with CACTUS’ vision of enabling scientific advancement through technology. “With so many research papers being published every year, it has become more difficult to catch the reader’s attention. Researchers need to curate content in alternate forms of scientific communication (e.g., posters, infographics, graphical abstracts) that are more engaging and create a long-lasting impact. We believe this acquisition will help us satisfy the changing nature of customer demands through the AI-powered solutions of Mind the Graph, he added.

Mind the Graph was founded in 2016 by a pharmacology researcher and a designer; the technology venture became the leading infographics platform for scientific communication in less than seven years. Fabricio Pamplona, co-founder of Mind the Graph, said,This partnership will help Mind the Graph grow faster and reach a much larger set of customers. It will benefit from CACTUS’ understanding of the industry and its significant presence across multiple geographies.”
