Meet Dave Meet SlideShare


									meet Dave
Facebook fanboy &
   startup mentor
Dave likes to hang   out at...
the University Cafe
...and give startups
the religion of metrics.
But he cannot   meet everyone...
he has conferences to organize...
 ...and two doting kids
he wants to spend time with
He creates
presentations to get his
ideas across
He used to email them
After a conference, he would take
business cards & email them
One day, he read on
    TechCrunch about...
Michael Arrington called it the
YouTube of PowerPoint
Dave tried it and was hooked!

He now uploads         to SlideShare
before giving a talk
When someone asks for slides,
he says "go   to my SlideShare page"
even better: people who missed the talk
still find his presentation!
His ideas are spreading,
new people find his slides everyday on

 Dave is a happy      man!
He met Rashmi, the CEO of
SlideShare who invited him
   to become an advisor
