Prezi Arrives in Brazil to Reinvent the Way People Make Presentations

Popular Cloud-Based Software Is Now Available in Portuguese

SAO PAULO, BRAZIL--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2013) - Prezi, the zooming presentation software, announces its arrival in Brazil with a fully localized software. Prezi, with over 29 million worldwide users, is investing in Brazil because of the increasing demand in the region. While also available in English, Prezi currently has over a million Brazilian users.

"We strive to help people around the world share their ideas, because we believe that sharing ideas makes the world a better place. Brazil is known as a country of creativity and innovation, and therefore we're confident of Prezi's growth in the region," explains Peter Arvai, CEO of Prezi.

Guilherme Herme Criscuolo, a São Paulo based digital designer, has been designing presentations in Prezi for over a year. When asked how he views Prezi versus other presentation software, he says: "With Prezi we can turn a simple presentation into a memorable experience, besides it is very practical and easy to use."

Instead of traditional presentation slides, Prezi uses an open canvas that allows people to see the big picture and connect ideas that are impossible to connect in a linear format. Users can zoom into small details and zoom out to reveal the larger meaning of their presentation. This visual impact engages the audience and helps them remember the content presented to them. With Prezi's multi-platform solution, you can access your prezis anytime and anywhere -- on the Internet, your desktop, your iPad or iPhone. Prezi also makes it easy to collaborate with others -- it is the only major presentation software that allows multiple people to co-create a presentation online simultaneously.

One of the main advantages of Prezi is the ease of inserting media like video and sound, allowing the user to create a dynamic, visual story instead of a bullet point slideshow. Also, since Prezi is accessible online, you can easily share your presentations with friends and colleagues around the world

The company was founded in Budapest in 2009 by Adam Somlai-Fischer, an architect and interactive designer; Peter Halacsy, a university professor in new media; and Peter Arvai, a serial entrepreneur. Currently, the company has offices in San Francisco and Budapest.

In 2009, Prezi raised 1.5 million from Sunstone Capital and TED Conferences. In November 2010, the company secured an additional $14 million in a new investment round led by Accel Partners, with participation of Sunstone Capital.
