21 GAME CHANGING New Tools For Entrepreneurs & Startup Founders

A while ago we started a new ListHunt series that finds the best new tools for startups and founders from the past week. The main driving force behind this new series was that we were finding a bunch of great tools, but they did not fit into the demographic that we were catering to with the daily ListHunts.

With our audience made up of a lot of founders and people in the startup community it was an easy decision to start this new series. We know that building a startup takes up a ton of time and you do not have time to look through all the new tools. That is where we come in, making your life just a little less hectic!

Glisser

Glisser makes presentations interactive. It takes regular slide decks and pushes them out live to audience mobile devices, slide-by-slide, as they are presented. It then enables members of the audience to interact with the presenter or each other, through polls, live Q&A and Twitter.

This improves engagement, aids learning and recall, and generates a huge amount of useful feedback and valuable data for presenters and event organizers. Attendees can also electronically mark-up the slides with notes, and send them to their email account for future reference.
