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.
