Mission, Vision and Values
Most of the core team had children all under the age of 4 and these parents experienced constant interruptions while they tried to keep up with their professional lives through virtual meetings. On screen solutions didn’t allow them to mute/unmute quickly enough.
They decided to do something about it. They put their heads together to ideate, prototype, and came up with "MuteMe" a innovative button that not only mutes/unmutes your microphone quickly, syncs with popular conferencing software, but also allows others around them know when the are on mute or not.
To date, all the development, marketing, software, design, websites, graphics, update servers, customer support, and even distribution for the most part has been handled by the internal team running a very lean operation to ensure we create a excellent product and company that stands the test of time.
MuteMe has been fueled by crowdfunding backers, engineers, parents, managers, and students. With overwhelming support globally, MuteMe is the first illuminated mute button to hit the market to help you increase your confidence by quickly muting/unmuting your microphone in virtual calls.
