Owl Labs Company Overview

The idea for Owl Labs was born when Owl Labs' cofounder and CTO Mark Schnittman was working remotely for a startup in Las Vegas while living in Boston. As one of the only remote employees, meeting and working with a group of people sitting together was incredibly painful. It was hard to see what was going on, difficult to hear what people were saying, and a challenge to actively contribute.

It became clear that current video conferencing tools are not optimized for remote participants and don’t provide them with a helpful, inclusive experience.

CEO Max Makeev joined Mark in founding Owl Labs with the mission to fix video conferencing for the remote employee.

Their solution was the Meeting Owl an intelligent 360°all-in-one video conferencing device that centers virtual conferencing around remote participants. Our mission is to create the inclusive meeting experience remote employees deserve. It will be one of the first IoT devices for the company conference room.
