Mentimeter is a Swedish company based in Stockholm that develops and maintains an eponymous app used to create presentations with real-time feedback.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8]

Foundation and background[edit]

Based in Stockholm, Sweden, the Mentimeter app was started by Swedish entrepreneur Johnny Warström[9] as a response to unproductive meetings.[10] The initial start up budget was $500,000 raised by a group of prominent investors, including Per Appelgren in 2014, following the market's tendency to invest in Scandinavia.[11][12]

The app also focuses on online collaboration for the education sector allowing students or public members to answer questions anonymously.[13][14][15]

The app enables users to share knowledge and real-time feedback on mobile[6] with presentations, polls or brainstorming sessions in classes, meetings, gatherings, conferences and other group activities.[13][16]

Present day[edit]

It has a freemium business model.[17] [18][19][20]

Mentimeter has over 20 million users and is one of Sweden's fastest growing startups.[21][2] The company also ranked #10 on 20 Fastest Growing 500 Startups Batch 16 Companies.[22][23][24][25] Was ranked Stockholm's fastest growing company of the 2018 edition of the Dagens Industri Gasell Award.[26][27]
