Mikogo was launched in July 2007 by the award-winning web collaboration solution provider, BeamYourScreen.
Founded in Germany in 2004 by Erik Boos and Mark Zondler, BeamYourScreen provides innovative web collaboration solutions, with a product range consisting of solutions for online meetings, web presentations, and remote support. Customers of the global company enjoy significantly reduced travel time and travel expenses, and are comprised of small, medium and large global corporations including Toshiba, Yamaha, and Roche.
Not only does BeamYourScreen serve over 2,000 corporate customers in 40 countries worldwide, in 2007 they were officially awarded the Best Innovations Award Category Communication by German Initiative Mittelstand for its online presentation product, Beam2Present.
After establishing a need for a further online meeting tool, following requests from the private user market for a free alternative, BeamYourScreen stepped up to meet the market demand and consequently launched Mikogo.
