Cyber Valley has welcomed Showzone into their Start-up Network. The start-up is a member of the ETH AI Center and has developed the first AI presentation delivery system, which makes every presentation interactive and impactful.
While giving powerful presentations is crucial for any business, content creation is not the only important factor in delivering a strong message. Founded in January 2023 as ETH Zürich spin-off, Showzone’s vision is to evolve presentations into outcome-driven experiences for everyone.
Users can simply drag their slides into the Showzone app, where a QR code is generated for the audience to follow the slides and engage with the presenter during the presentation. At the end, a one-click summary of the transcript is created and shared with attendees. Showzone then notifies the presenter about audience interactions with the summary, enabling effective follow-ups with promising leads. The company strives to increase engagement between the presenter and their audience by making presenting more effective.
“Our attention span is very short, and we tend to forget over 80% of the information immediately after a presentation. For presenters, this means their presentation doesn’t pay off: they cannot engage their audience well, and once the presentation ends, they have no way to connect with them. We are here to fix it,” Eren Akbiyik, CEO of Showzone.
