Glisser, a London, UK-based event tech platform provider, raised $1m in funding.
The company intends to use the funds to launch its tool in the US market.
Led by CEO Mike Piddock, Glisser provides presentation technology that connects event speakers with event delegates for real-time comments, questions, polls and social sharing. The PowerPoint Add-in plugin delivers slides to any smartphone live whilst combining real-time comments, questions and social interaction.
The company has collaborated with Microsoft to integrate their technology into PowerPoint as an add-in extension, to target the 20m business events held each year globally. The PowerPoint add-in, released this week, delivers live Q&A and a Twitter stream within the speaker’s presentation. Polls can be dragged and dropped into place with results, questions and interactions viewed live on the main screen, or post-event.
