In Shufflrr, every file is formatted as a slide, ready to present. It keeps messaging, branding, images, data more synchronized in a presentation library, allowing groups like sales and training teams to easily share files, build decks and show presentations from any device anywhere.
“Tampa provides a lower cost of living and fewer business barriers, which will better position us to grow Shufflrr over the next several years,” said James Ontra, CEO of Shufflrr. “We visited multiple cities and were won over by Tampa’s business-friendly environment and growing tech ecosystem. We’re excited to plant roots in Tampa and grow our operations from this vibrant community.”
This project was made possible in partnership with Embarc Collective and the Tampa Bay Economic Development Council.
Shufflrr joins a growing list of tech companies that have recently relocated or expanded their operations to Tampa and Hillsborough County, including Drift, JustProtect, TrustLayer, OPSWAT and Fast.
“AlexAnndra and James bring a tremendous amount of experience from markets around the country to Tampa Bay,” said Lakshmi Shenoy, CEO of Embarc Collective. “They have been a welcome addition to the growing startup community we’re seeing locally.”
“Tampa is quickly growing as a top destination for talented tech entrepreneurs seeking a better quality of life and friendlier business environment to grow their tech companies,” said James Nozar, chair of the Tampa Bay Economic Development Council and strategic adviser to the board of Strategic Property Partners. “We’re excited to welcome Shufflrr to Tampa, and we look forward to supporting them as they ramp up operations here.”
Shufflrr is already becoming an active member of Tampa’s startup and technology ecosystem. AlexAnndra Ontra is part of Tampa Bay Wave’s TechWomen Rising Accelerator and presented at Demo Day on Thursday.
The Ontras have worked together since 2000, developing and marketing presentation software.
They founded their own company, Ontra Presentations, in 2002. Over the years, they’ve developed several presentation applications for hundreds of Fortune-level clients.
