MyCommittee is a Canadian-based startup which seeks to help people and groups better manage their meetings. CTO Dirk Op de Beeck sent in a perfect pitch email and even included a login for me to use to test the application.
MyCommittee allows you to setup meetings, an agenda for the meeting including tabs for previous and new business, a place to store documents from the meeting and the ability to distribute the minutes to all attendees. Having been responsible for managing meeting minutes in the past, a tool like this would have come in handy over a simple word document.
The site could really use a step-by-step walkthrough for new members. I was a bit confused when I clicked on the meetings tab and was presented with a graphic sample but no links to actually make a meeting. Perhaps a "meeting wizard" would work as well.
What I like about the way MyCommittee has setup their freemium model is that they give you the bare minimum for free and push you into upgrading. I’ve written before that companies using this model generally give away so much for free that no one has a reason to upgrade. I would think they could work on an enterprise white-label version as well.
