After launching the product in June 2017, over 20,000 companies have purchased the Meeting Owl, saying it offers the most natural and inclusive meeting experience they’ve ever seen.

An Insider's view of Owl Labs

What's something quirky about your company?

We practice what we preach. Employees work at our Somerville HQ, across the US, and often are a hybrid mix of in-office and remote. We all work hard, and so we believe in working whenever you're at your best.

Rebecca

This is my first startup, and I expected that the pace would be fast. I've also learned how to remove barriers, navigate processes, and anticipate others' needs to keep things moving quickly and efficiently.

What is your vision for the company?

I've witnessed the gaps in technology that make it exceptionally hard for remote participants to be seen, heard and most importantly, understood.
