Caya is one of the three co-founders, and the CEO at Slidebean; overseeing the company roadmap, strategy, and growth marketing efforts.

Slidebean is a venture-backed company founded in 2014 and headquartered in New York City. The company closed its first seed round in 2016 and has since become a multi-million dollar, profitable tech company that continues to expand rapidly.

Caya has been running tech startups since 2011, which have earned him recognition as a '40-under-40', plus being a guest speaker in over a dozen startup and tech conferences around the world, including TEDx.

His experience with startups, from leading and growing a company, to raising capital and participating in accelerator programs such as 500 Startups and DreamIt Ventures gives him a unique insight into the needs of seed-stage companies.

Caya's background in graphic design, digital animation, and filmmaking, also make him a fantastic storyteller. He's worked directly with over one thousand Slidebean customers to assist with their pitch deck writing and design.

redesigning Uber's pitch deck

This is the pitch deck that Uber used to raise their first round of funding, back in 2008. I think it's a fantastic example of a perfectly defined problem/solution combination: so obvious it's surprising nobody else saw it before them.

the Airbnb pitch deck

Airbnb's original pitch deck from 2009 has become one of the most sought-after references for new entrepreneurs. It was one of the first pitch decks from unicorn companies to be released publicly, and it got a lot of media attention.
