Four years ago, Mikogo was created from an idea by our company, BeamYourScreen which since 2004 has developed and operated business desktop sharing solutions. Numerous private individuals approached our company asking for a free online meeting tool for personal use. None of the big corporations, such as WebEx, were offering free solutions for personal use and we came to strongly believe that the private user was missing out. With this in mind, we decided to create Mikogo, a free desktop sharing tool for private users.
What started as an idea in 2007 has since developed into a service soon to reach 1 million registered users in 180 countries worldwide. We are thrilled at how many people support our work and enjoy our software – thank you!
Today we bring you an important message about how together we will sustain Mikogo as a high-quality desktop sharing program. We will soon introduce a freemium model to Mikogo. This is a big step for us and we ask that you please read the following blog post.
