Our Story

Once upon a time, in the fall of 2020, a group of tech-savvy parents and entrepreneurs came together to tackle a common problem: how to mute and unmute your microphone quickly and easily during virtual meetings. With young children underfoot, they knew all too well the pain of constant interruptions and the frustration of fumbling with on-screen mute buttons.

So, they rolled up their sleeves and got to work. The team - made up of engineers, computer scientists, marketing managers, and tinkerers - set out to create a solution that was fast, reliable, and easy to use. They brainstormed, they prototyped, and after many long nights, they emerged victorious: MuteMe was born.

MuteMe is more than just a simple mute button. It's an innovative tool that syncs seamlessly with popular conferencing software, illuminates when you're on mute, and lets you mute and unmute with the touch of a button. And it's all thanks to the hard work and ingenuity of the MuteMe team.

From development to marketing to software design, every aspect of MuteMe has been handled in-house by a tight-knit team of dedicated professionals. They've worked tirelessly to create an excellent product and a company that stands the test of time.

And it's all been made possible by the support of a global community of crowdfunding backers, engineers, parents, managers, and students. Their enthusiasm and encouragement have driven MuteMe to new heights, and we couldn't be more grateful.

So the next time you're on a virtual call and need to mute your microphone in a hurry, think of MuteMe - the illuminated mute button that increases your confidence and helps you stay in control. Thanks for being a part of our story!

Started From The Bottom

What a ride it's been! In just ten short months, we've gone from an idea to a fully-fledged company, with two amazing products, a killer software suite, our very own update servers, multiple patents, a top-notch customer support team, and national media coverage to boot. And all of this, mind you, while navigating massive shipping issues, supply chain disruptions, chip shortages, and the occasional people shortage.

But we're not ones to shy away from a challenge - with your support, feedback, and infinite patience, we've been able to weather the storms and come out on top. We couldn't have done it without you, and we're incredibly grateful for every single one of you who's helped us build a better, more seamless new normal. Here's to more exciting adventures ahead!
