SlideRocket was 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. They are no longer offering independent signups, as the platform is being integrated into ClearSlide.
SlideRocket was founded in Jan 2006, and launched as a private beta in March 2008 at the Under The Radar Spring event. A public beta was announced in September 2008 followed shortly by public release 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. On March 5, 2013 VMware sold SlideRocket to ClearSlide. SlideRocket is based in San Francisco.
