Presentation software maker Prezi has received $14 million in a recent Series B round of funding led by Accel Partners.

The company has emerged as a prominent alternative to Microsoft's PowerPoint and has garnered a user base of more than 7 million users worldwide.

Apart from offering a cloud based web solution, the company also offers Prezi Desktop for offline creation and editing of presentation. Prezi also offers Prezi Meeting for real-time collaboration and a Prezi Viewer app for the iPad.
