About MeetingBurner The company was founded by brothers, John and Paul Rydell, who were fed up watching the world waste billions of dollars a year in inefficient and ineffective online meetings. After spending a decade building a CRM business that supports more than 100,000 small business owners, the Rydells set out to build the world's best online meeting platform with a vision to make it fast, simple, and efficient. The industrial-strength MeetingBurger.com platform was built in the cloud with patent-pending technology to eventually allow for meetings of virtually any size. MeetingBurner opens its doors today for public release. For more information about the company visit www.meetingburger.com
