Interview with Adam Somlai-Fischer, Prezi founder

As you already know, we love web startups. And everything about them. However, there are some startups which we like more than others. And Prezi is definitely one of them. The Hungarian startup, Prezi, was founded by Adam Somlai-Fischer, Peter Halacsy and Peter Arvai in 2009 in Budapest and represented a real revolution for business presentations. Later in 2009, Prezi received an investment from TED Conferences and Sunstone Capital.

As we are huge fans of Prezi, we decided to have a chat with Adam Somlai-Fischer, one of the 3 Prezi founders, and find out something more about the motivation behind Prezi and their road to success.
