Meetzoo, a company that aims to make business meetings more productive by combining business calendars with collaborative note taking and social networking, has successfully secured its initial equity crowdfunding campaign 150,000 funding target on Crowdcube.
As previously reported, Meetzoo was launched earlier this year by entrepreneur Paul Lewis-Borman, co-founder of software firm Symbox. The company recently opened its beta on iPhone and revealed:
“By integrating people’s electronic calendar with their LinkedIn summary and note taking, Meetzoo allows customers to see information on people they meet, find previous meetings by person or title and immediately see any actions that might be outstanding. Agenda, notes and actions can be shared as well as connectivity with Linkedin. We aspire to integrate the connectivity of more third party apps. This means people’s business meeting lifecycle becomes integrated with the way they work.”
Meetzoo’s team stated they aim to charge a subscription through the company’s website for Premium features such as enhanced storage, branding, and connectivity that will allow users to push meeting data directly into their existing CRM systems. Their target market is anybody that uses an electronic calendar and has a profile on LinkedIn.
Sharing details about the company, Lewis-Borman reportedly stated:
“Like most business professionals, I spend a large amount of my work life participating in meetings. Meetings should be the most productive and creative interactions of our business lives. They are the lifeblood of business, yet they are rarely as productive as they should be. I took a hard look at what is wrong with meetings – such as not knowing enough about each of the attendees beforehand, attendees not being properly briefed, agendas rarely being used or followed, poor time management and little in the way of continuity or accountability between meetings. I went looking for an app that could solve these problems and couldn’t find one, so I created Meetzoo.”
Funds from the campaign will be used to employ a full-time team to support Meetzoo’s app store launch. The initiative is set to close next Tuesday.
