Originally started in NUVention Web, a software and entrepreneurship class at Northwestern, Podium is a web platform that helps professionals get feedback on important presentations like sales and funding pitches. It allows users to post videos of dry runs of their presentations, share them to anyone with an email address, and receive feedback that’s automatically time-tagged to the relevant part of the video.
I am 50% of the development team for Podium, and was involved in pretty much all the decisions made about it, from business model to branding to technology. I developed the logo and color scheme for it, and have worked on the back end, front end, customer service, and integration with external services like Mandrill and Amazon Elastic Transcoder.
Podium is still active today and has been used by notable organizations like the Techstars incubators to help their members sharpen and perfect their pitches.
