Peter Arvai loves technologies that enable world-changing stories to be shared. In 2008, he joined forces with Adam Somlai-Fischer and Péter Halácsy, an architect and an innovator, to create a more memorable and engaging way for people to share stories. Today, their creation is known as “Prezi.”
Before co-founding Prezi, Peter was already active in the information-sharing realm. In Sweden, he founded omvard.se a company that aggregates data on treatment outcomes for hospital patients. Soon after, he developed the world’s first mobile newsreader so people could follow TED Talks from their mobile devices.
In his spare time, Peter enjoys prodding fellow colleagues to join him at Bikram Yoga classes. Additionally, he’s the go-to translator at Prezi since he speaks Japanese, Swedish, Hungarian, and English, which also awards him the coveted title of “polyglot.”
