SlideShare gets funded

The techcrunch article lays out the details. We are really happy with how things worked out! Many thanks to everybody out there who played a part in making it happen.
We could have made a press release, of course, but press releases are kinda boring. So we made a meet henry style presentation instead.

“Meet Henry” is a presentation style that evolved on slideshare, and is a great way to describe the value of any good or service (through a simple, predictable narrative arc). In our case, we used Dave McClure (who’s an angel AND an advisor) as our “Henry”.
We’re really grateful to our community for taking us this far. We love you guys and all the cool stuff you do, and can’t wait to see what you upload next! We promise to work really hard to make the SlideShare experience as useful and pleasurable as possible.

    Congrats. I also like the “Henry” approach to the press side of the things….keeping it cool and casual!
