/// ClearSlide Lands $28 Million In Round Led by Bessemer

August 29, 2012  |  All Things Digital

How many times a week do you have to look at a deck of slides being presented to you by someone else trying to convince you of something? And how much trouble do you go through to see them when you’re viewing them remotely? It can be a hassle, often involving the installation of some application before you can see what the other person wants you to see. It’s a hassle that ClearSlide, the cloud-based presentation company, has been aiming to solve. Few things will annoy a boss or a new sales prospect more than wasting their time while you fumble around with a computer to get a deck ready. ClearSlide’s approach uses a cloud-based service that presentation decks on the Web at a single personalized URL. There’s no applications to install and no attachments to send. You just send the other party the URL and they’re ready to see what you have to show them. It’s a pretty simple play that attempts to turn the whole web-conferencing business on its ear. But something must be working. Today the company says it has raised a $28 million Series B round of venture capital funding, led by Bessemer Capital Partners. Greylock Partners and Felicis Ventures, investors in prior rounds, also participated. Additionally Byron Deeter, a partner at Bessemer, and John Jack, the former CEO of Fortify Software, are joining ClearSlides’ board of directors.
