Podcast “So techt Germany” with Christian Reber: Pitch wants to be the best PowerPoint

500 million people around the world use presentation software. The vast majority of Powerpoint, but a total of 100 different products populate the market. In “So techt Deutschland” Christian Reber reveals how he still wants to be successful with the pitch.

If you’re preparing a presentation at work, school, or college, you’ll most likely be using Microsoft’s PowerPoint. It is estimated that more than 30 million presentations are created every day using the market leader’s software. Christian Reber wants to change it. The new startup of the serial founder is called Pitch and offers presentation software of the same name.

Reber has his experience with Microsoft. He once sold his startup Wunderlist for € 150 million to the company founded by Bill Gates. But he doesn’t want to pester the top dog with pitch. At least that’s what he says on the ntv podcast “So techt Deutschland”: 500 million people around the world use presentation software. If he could win even a small part, it would already be a success.

To do this, Reber has to stand up against a lot of competition. There are probably around 100 products on the market. Pitch wants to go where Keynote, Prezi, or Google Slides already are.

Example? Apple and Tesla

On average, it takes two hours to prepare a PowerPoint presentation. Reber wants to do it faster and smarter. The world’s most successful companies like Apple and Tesla have “perfected the art of presentation,” says the founder. Therefore, the events of the two companies regularly have millions of spectators.

The long-term goal? With Pitch, Reber wants to build a successful company with “Software as a Service”. These companies offer software that users can easily upgrade for a fee.
