The inspiration
You might think our background is in presentation design, but that’s not quite how things unfolded. We started out at Startup Weekend and Techstars, wishing we could easily create the kinds of killer pitch decks that grab attention and rally support around a great idea. Although the businesses we’ve pitched and launched over the years didn’t always work out the way we hoped, we kept coming back to the slides. Why is it so difficult to create an awesome presentation?

Deep down, we believe that presenting your company, or your story, or your idea should be a fun, creative experience, but for nearly everybody we talked to, it was the opposite. We’ve all been using pretty much the same tools, in the same way, for years–using lame templates, fiddling with the space between our bullets, and wrestling with bulky file attachments–despite the fact that we hate doing those things and we’re spending an increasing amount of time on connected, mobile devices.

We decided it was high time to reinvent presentations for how we work, communicate, and create now. With Haiku Deck, anyone can easily create a flawless presentation that can be easily projected, shared, posted, embedded on a website or blog, or viewed on any web-enabled device.

Our philosophy: Simple, beautiful, fun
We’ve built Haiku Deck around presentation tips recommended by experts and designers. Keep it simple by limiting your text and focusing each slide on a single idea. Make it beautiful by building your story around high-impact images and keeping your formatting consistent. And, most of all, have fun. Fun is not a word most people associate with presentations, but we feel they should be fun to make and fun to listen to.

Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Pros Cons
HaikuDeck is a great, reliable, and user-friendly slide deck creating program for teachers and students alike I haven't run into any negative experience thus far with this software
This is perfect for modern, and clean looking slide decks It's worked exactly as expected, if not better
The images, overlays, fonts and transparent/depth options make your decks look like they came from a paid designer Last, there are just some things you cannot change - if you don't like a particular format, there's little you can do besides pick another preloaded option (e.g
The idea, the concept, is great few customizations)
Images are powerful conveyors of the message." I think the problem may result from my computer crash last year

Haiku Deck reviews

Haiku Deck allows you to create a quick and easy slide deck online (or via an iPad app). The goal is to make the presentation engaging, not an informational overload, and Haiku Deck has the goods to make it happen.

- Eric Griffith of PC MAG

Whoever said the iPad is only ideal for media consumption, rather than content creation, obviously hasn't downloaded Haiku Deck, a free and powerful presentation maker for your tablet.

- Marc Saltzman of USA TODAY

Haiku Deck offers just the features that you'll actually use and the design structure makes it difficult to create an ugly presentation. It's the Instagram for pitch decks.

- Dani Fankhauser of MASHABLE
