The countdown to our upcoming conference continues and so does the countdown of selected PITCH finalists who will be pitching live on stage in front of a panel of awesome investors in Vegas! Today we’ve reached number nine and are happy to announce the judges have chosen ReOrient Media, publisher of Infinite Canvas Tools.

Infinite PDF Logo Black on Seal_300The flagship product of the company, which was cofounded by Katelyn Lyster, Christopher Allen and Kalle Alm, is Infinite PDF, a tool that allows users to expand their existing presentations to add dimensionality, transitions and interactivity. Billed as easy-to-use, the tool allows you to  import PDFs from Dropbox, the web, email or from another app, quickly create a core spine for your presentation and build branches above or below any topic to give it more depth.

The goal is never having to say the words, “I have it in my deck somewhere” again as users are empowered to engage their audiences in interactive conversations tailored specifically to them.

Want to hear more? Join us in Vegas to see all our finalists pitch their companies.
