PowToon is Web-based animation software that allows users to create animated presentations by manipulating pre-created objects, imported images, provided music and user created voice-overs. Powtoon uses an Adobe Flex engine to generate an XML file that can be played in the Powtoon online viewer, exported to YouTube or downloaded as an MP4 file.

PowToon’s Mission:

To address all the frustrations that people have with Power Point and Keynote and add animation and killer design

We defined our mission as: PowToon will create the world’s most minimalist, user friendly and intuitive presentation software that allows someone with no technical or design skills to create engaging professional “look and feel” animated presentations. Our aim is to establish a new presentation category called “powtoon” – a combination of presentation and animated cartoon – as the industry standard for evolved (animated) presentations.

Our greater vision is to effect the way people communicate in a profound way: “If a picture speaks a thousand words, an animation conveys an idea.” In the next series of post we will outline how the hard work of turning an idea into reality began…

PowToon hearts Business

Every business needs to convey their message and benefits in an attention grabbing and engaging way. The added level of abstraction created by using cartoons allows a viewer to experience benefits of using a product before they ever laid hand on it. The process of creating an animated presentation of your product or service has – until now – been a cost and time intensive process (starting at $2,000 and going up to $25,000 for a 90 second animated presentation). PowToon is disrupting this space by providing marketers and businesses with the tool and marketplace to create their own awesome Powtoons.

PowToon hearts Education

PowToon wants to also make a difference in the education sector and our tool is designed to allow education professionals (and students) to create content that is visually engaging, captivating and fun to make.
