Last update:

Amsterdam and San Francisco-based Miro, an online collaborative whiteboard platform designed for distributed team collaboration, announced on Wednesday that it has acquired Uizard, a Copenhagen-based AI-powered product design platform for product teams. 

However, the company didn’t disclose the exact amount.

Uizard will continue to be available with no changes to the day-to-day product experience.

“We have long admired Miro and their mission to empower teams to create the next big thing. In fact, many of us here at Uizard use Miro alongside Uizard to accelerate ideation, design, and prototyping. We share the same vision and passion for making it easier and faster for teams to innovate and accelerate their product lifecycle. Not only did Miro pioneer the idea of visual collaboration technology, but they also continue to push themselves to exceed expectations for what an innovation workspace can and should do,” says the company.

Uizard: Turning ideas into design proposals & interactive prototypes 

Founded in 2018 by four friends and entrepreneurs — Tony Beltramelli, Henrik Haugbølle, Ioannis Sintos, and Florian van Schreven, Uizard is an AI-powered UI design tool used for designing wireframes, mockups, and prototypes for apps, websites, and digital products.

These features enable users to convert screenshots into clickable UI mockups, transform hand-drawn sketches into wireframes, generate copies for prototypes, and import UI themes from a URL or images.

It’s worth mentioning here that the Uizard journey started as a machine learning research project called pix2code in 2017 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Uizard only fully formed as a company in early 2018 after a trip to San Francisco and a hacking session in a Mountain View garage.
