I have had a break in the blog posts, due to getting over to the US and getting settled, but also because being so busy over here.

So I am now in the Valley, that is Silicon Valley. I am slowing getting settled with everything, and getting some traction behind my different projects with-in BootstrapLabs (such as Prezi). It’s Friday afternoon, and pretty tired, I have had a very productive week with some very good meeting with everything from CTO’s in some top companies to Entrepreneurs and founders of some of the most well-known Internet startups in the valley.

I see great progress for the first initial companies that BootstrapLabs is bringing over to the valley from Europe

BootstrapLabs has got it’s office now in Redwood City, and I am working with some people here in the valley to build a very interesting incubator model with associated business development activities.

I think we will be able to offer an very attractive model for companies to get established in the valley and get successful.

All and all, a great few weeks, I hit the ground running and is still trying to get some orientation of everything that is happening. I am having great fun, and the wheather have been terrific (28-35 C during the days), besides the amazing people and business climate.

Besides me still waiting for my E-2 treaty investor visa to be finalized, I have been working hard at signing new clients here in Europe for my new venture BootstrapLabs, and new the deals are starting to fall into place, and I am now ready to disclose the first one, which is Prezi.

So we have now signed an agreement with Prezi to help them establish a US presence.  It is part of an agreement between Prezi, BootstrapLabs and CrossConnect, to provide Prezi with advisory and strategic planning and help Prezi establish a senior advisory board, secure an initial round of funding from business angels, and to reach cash flow positive with-in 12 months, and prepare for a US market entry and scale-up.

Prezi is a leading provider of a new zooming presentation technology. It allows presenters to move beyond the slide-by-slide approach and to simply create amazing non-linear presentations. Prezi launched it’s product 5th of April 2009 after a year of a closed beta period.
This week Prezi also won the award “Most likely to succeed” by the Swedish angel investor network Connect Sweden (East), which gives the company access to a a large number of business angel investors.

I am very exciting about working with Prezi, and believe this is a very disruptive product.
