SlideShare co-founder Rashmi Sinha, together with co-founder Jonathan Boutelle, creates a unique environment on the Web with her company SlideShare, a social-sharing slideshow Web site.
Sinha caught the entrepreneurial bug early. Researching search interfaces and recommender systems during her postdoc at UC Berkeley, she decided she wanted to focus on problems affecting users in a real-time environment. As a result, she founded Uzanto, a user experience consulting company. Some of Uzanto's clients included eBay, Blue Shield and AAA. One of her first products was MindCanvas, a game-like software geared for customer research that was released in November 2005. She launched her current venture, SlideShare, in 2006.
SlideShare allows users and businesses to share presentations, documents and pdfs. According to the company Web site, individuals and organizations upload their documents and the content spreads virally through blogs and social networks, connecting people and generating leads for business. The company estimates nearly 25 million visitors visit the site monthly. The company received series A funding from Venrock in 2008.
Sinha earned a PhD in cognitive neuropsychology from Brown University in 1998. She blogs about the social web at www.rashmisinha.com. She speaks frequently at conferences like FOWA, SXSW & WebVisions.
