Ola Rosling is President & Co-Founder of Gapminder Foundation which he founded together with his wife and his father.
In 1999, Ola led the development of the Trendalyzer software, which was acquired by Google in 2007. At Google, Ola and his team delivered the Motion Chart as part of Google Spreadsheets. As Product Manager for Google Public Data Ola then helped democratize access to Public Statistics by developing the infrastructure needed to make official statistics part of Google Search results. Ola and Anna went back to Gapminder in 2011 to develop free teaching materials for a fact-based worldview.
In 2014 Ola coined the term Factfulness, which Gapminder promoted in order to make the education about Sustainable Development less ideological and more fact-based.
Together with Anna and Hans, Ola wrote the Factfulness book, launched in April 2018.
