Vivino is the company behind the app for wine connoisseurs. The app uses image recognition to match the label against its database of 450.000 wines and retrieves the available data for users to identify and catalogues wine. The company was founded in 2009 and its app has already reached one million users. Recently, the company has decided to open an office in San Francisco – between Silicon Valley and Napa Valley. In the past, Vivino has received $1 million in Series A financing from Creandum, seed funding from SEED Capital and Skype co-founder Janus Friis.

Heini Zachariassen consideres himself to be an “operating entrepreneur”. He has a Bachelor in Economics and Business Administration, and has previously worked as Chief Technology Office for Virus112 A/S, CEO and COO for BullGuard Ltd. before founding Vivino.
