MEETiiN Lands $500K To Optimize Its Cloud-Based Meeting Management Platform
MEETiiN, a meeting management platform startup based in Taipei, has received $500,000 from angel investors including Innobridge International. Since its launch last month, 2,400 accounts have been opened on the platform, says spokeswoman Kris Jen. MEETiiN is operated by skyWallets, a startup founded by former employees of HTC, LiteOn and Yahoo that is also the developer behind ideaWallets, an idea management and development platform for creative professionals. Innobridge’s prior investments include AboveNet, Canon, Mobilink, and PayPal investment.
MEETiiN’s cloud-based meeting management platform is targeted to SMEs and designed to direct meetings and organize follow-up tasks. The startup’s clients currently include Epson and LiteOn. Jen tells me MEETiin has a leg-up on its competitors because “compared with other online conference platforms, MEETiiN is more like a task-oriented cloud service starting with meetings. Besides minutes taking, MEETiiN provides a powerful service to track and follow up tasks, which ensures every meeting is completely effective without any issues being sidelined. Moreover, we designed a quite intuitive interface, so every user can get the hang of MEETiiN really quickly.”
MEETiiN has two core functions: the PMF and Eagle View. PMF stands for “planning, management and followup” and allows users to set agendas, take meeting minutes, invite meeting participants, and track tasks. The Eagle View function is meant for executives and allows them to track the progress of different meetings simultaneously. MEETiiN can be used on the Web and iOS devices.
The company plans to use angel funding to expand its team, add more functions to the MEETiiN platform and optimize its service.
