We help people share ideas
We believe that all good things about humanity start with people sharing ideas. Prezi inspires creative thinking, connects people through meaningful discussions, and constructs beautiful stories. We see presentations as a snapshot in time and believe that each prezi lives both before and after a specific presentation. From the moment of jotting down a random thought to the chance to tell the story of a lifetime, we think ideas matter and have the potential to change the world. We want Prezi to help every step of the way.
We encourage beauty
Communicating ideas should be stylish as well as functional. We provide tools for you to express yourself beautifully, whatever that means to you.
We prefer simple things
The value of Prezi is not just a sum of its features. We’ve found that simplicity is actually hard to achieve, but in the end, it makes things much easier. Whether it’s a new interface feature or our employee benefits package, we try to stay focused by avoiding unnecessary complexity.
We believe that one of the most profound values of humanity is curiosity and a thirst for knowledge. We encourage questions, even if they don’t lead to immediate answers.
Listening—really listening—is harder than it seems. We believe that we have the most to learn from our users. We value your ideas and our dialogue with you.
We engage with our surroundings
We’re interested in the big picture and the things immediately close to us. Our product and our employees cross barriers to improve the world around us. We are not afraid to take the side of the disadvantaged. Each winter since Prezi’s founding, our company has renovated the homes of Roma families, a historically disadvantaged ethnic group, around Budapest. This experience has helped us to better understand ourselves and our society.
We get it done
We have big dreams and we know how to break them down into deliverable steps. Small improvements are often the best way to move mountains.
We’re honest, learn from mistakes, and avoid blaming others
Fear of making mistakes can squash innovation and creativity. At Prezi, we create an environment where people dare to make and admit mistakes. We avoid blaming each other, and we take a critical view of ourselves. We like to openly discuss everything—including our weaknesses.
We admire monkeys, Joan of Arc, and Jean-Luc Picard
At Prezi, we are diverse and are eager to learn about each other’s interests. We believe that there is inspiration to be found in anything—whether it’s a quirky hobby or an unlikely hero. Sometimes we burst into karaoke songs, do swing classes, and invite the CEO’s mom to our parties. Sure, we do these things because we value self-expression, but also because we’ll never tire of learning about each other, ourselves, and the world.
We keep our promises
We don’t make promises we believe we can’t keep. Often it is easier to say “yes” than “no.” Often it is equally easy to come up with excuses for why a promise wasn’t kept. We acknowledge the uncertainties of the world, but when we make a commitment, we do our utmost to deliver on it.
