MinuteHero is the smartest meeting productivity technology out there

Save 80% of time and costs by letting Artificial Intelligence write your meeting minutes.

The story behind MinuteHero

MinuteHero was founded in 2016 by Elias Voelker, Kai Pigorsch and Marc Puels.

​In early 2016 Elias came up with the idea for MinuteHero while working on a freelance consulting engagement. He was just tired of having to take notes in conference calls because it just killed productivity.

​Kai was working on the same project as Elias, facing the same challenges. He especially hated the time lost to find out what was discussed in previous calls, just because nobody had made the effort to write up and send around some minutes.

​Marc was a software engineer, leading a software development team when Elias and Kai called him up. He had worked on robust speech recognition technology earlier in his career. So founding MinuteHero was the logical next step for him.

​So he joined Elias and Kai in their quest for a new superhero.
