The idea of GoPro came into Nick’s mind during his Australia and Indonesia trip, where he saw amateur photographers facing difficulties in taking high-quality pictures. That’s precisely what also suggested the title of the company as well. Nick himself was just using a 35mm camera attached to his palm through a rubber band and then take pictures.
He decided to develop a ‘Belt’ for a camera that would be attached to one’s body. He started his funding by borrowing from his own parents and selling ‘Shells’ they brought from Bali. The first GoPro product was a 35mm film camera developed by a Chinese company named Hotax with GoPro strips. The product evolved into a compact digital camera supporting WiFi, remote control, waterproof housing, and recording to micro SD Card.
In 2012, the Taiwanese company acquired 8.88% of the company for $200 million, setting the market value at $2,25 billion, also making Nick a Billionaire.

In 2016, GoPro also faced a classic action lawsuit alleging making false and misleading statements, failing to disclose flaws, and overstating consumer demand. Following all this, he was also named in 2016 Fox Business articles as one of the worst CEOs of the year.
He was awarded the National Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the year award in the ‘retail and consumer products’ category in 2013. In 2014, Nick, on behalf of the whole GoPro, received an Emmy Award for Technology and Engineering in the category of inexpensive Small Rugged HD Camcorders.
