SlideRocket is an online presentation platform that lets users create, manage, share and measure presentations. SlideRocket is provided via a SaaS model. The company was acquired by ClearSlide, a similar SaaS application, in March 2013.[1] They are no longer offering independent signups, as the platform is being integrated into ClearSlide.[2]

History[edit]

SlideRocket was founded in Jan 2006, and launched as a private beta[3][4] in March 2008 at the Under The Radar Spring event. A public beta was announced in September 2008[5] followed shortly by public release[6][7] on October 28, 2008. SlideRocket is most commonly credited with inventing the PResuMÉ or Presentation Résumé in early 2009. On April 26, 2011 SlideRocket was acquired by VMware.[8][9][10] On March 5, 2013 VMware sold SlideRocket to ClearSlide.[11] SlideRocket is based in San Francisco.
