Fotki has achieved critical mass in the number of users including international markets, it has strong revenues. Fotki is a promising company that is investable. During the presentation it became obvious that Fotki is an undiscovered gem and iBreakfast wants to put them up with major investors as soon as possible because this business is a valuable player in a quickly growing digital image market place.”
