9Slides founder Ruchit Garg

9Slides, the maker of online presentation software that syncs video with slides, has raised capital from Dave McClure’s 500 Startups as well as angel investors such as Terrapass co-founder Karl Ulrich and Tom Miner.

9Slides rolled out its iPad app in February, competing alongside fellow Seattle area startup Haiku Deck.

The company’s other backers include Rudy Gadre, former general counsel of Facebook and vice president of legal at, and Felix Anthony, former Vice President of Kindle software. Total funding in the startup, led by former Microsoftie Ruchit Garg, now stands at $500,000.

“We’re delighted that these renowned investors have trusted the 9Slides team’s vision and its ability to execute that vision” said Garg.

9Slides is free for the first five talks with limited features. A premium version, for 10 talks without ads and including analytics, starts at $9.99 per month.
