Glisser was awarded Gold at the MassChallenge UK Finals last week, effectively placing us in the top 15 out of 1,700 startups that began the process back in June.
Glisser makes presentations interactive – it takes regular PowerPoint or Keynote presentations and pushes them out live to audience mobile devices, slide-by-slide, as they are presented. It then enables members of the audience to interact with the presenter or each other, ask questions, and share content, and collects valuable feedback for event organisers. Attendees can also electronically mark-up the slides with notes, and keep them for future reference
MassChallenge is the world’s largest startup accelerator. It doesn’t take equity or fees, but teams up with businesses like IBM and NatWest so startups can compete for a share of £500,000 prize money – Glisser received £25,000 last night (in the form of a very large cheque).
Mike Piddock Founder at Glisser said
“This is a massive endorsement for what we are doing – making presentations more engaging, participatory, and data-driven. Hot on the heals of the Event Technology of the Year awards, where we were the only UK company in the finals, it’s been a sensational week.”
Less than a year after launching, our client list now includes i2i Events, Investec, Visa, The Design Council, Grant Thornton, Bloomberg and three UK Government departments.
