seattle, WA (PRWEB) September 12, 2008
Slideshow.com, LLC and Domain Strategies, Inc. announced today the launch of a new internet business - Slideshow.Com - created to be the foundation for a growing business offering a secure platform for posting, sharing and publishing presentations and pictures online.
Gil Benatar, aka "Mr. Slideshow", contributed the domain name Slideshow.com to the Slideshow.com, LLC joint venture owned by both Gil and Domain Strategies in June 2008. "I was interested in building a great business on the Slideshow.com domain and the approach by Rob Monster and Scott Fasser of Domain Strategies was the perfect fit for my situation." Explained Mr. Benatar, "The fact that we were able to research, plan, build and launch a relatively complex site within a couple of months was very impressive."
Domain Strategies is spearheading a partnership model with owners of premium domains to combine the strong branded domain name and industry know-how, with the site development, capital and business relationship expertise of Domain Strategies. Scott Fasser described the process this way, "We combined technology from Identity.net for single sign-on, iPaper for publishing from Scribd.com, open source image management, as well as proprietary content in order to create Slideshow.com."
The funding for Slideshow.com has come from Seattle-based Monster Venture Partners, led by Rob Monster, the company's Managing Director.
"Gil has been an ideal business partner for this venture, not only because of his contribution of the premier domain name in the space, but also for his 20 years of knowledge and expertise in the development of presentations and communication tools. The initial site is a foundation for growth into the premier online utility for posting and sharing presentations in a secure environment using the Identity.net user management framework." explained Rob Monster.
