Mentimeter is a collaborative and interactive platform that makes presentations, meetings, and lectures engaging and participatory instead of just passive. The company was founded in Stockholm in 2014 with the vision of shifting the culture of presentations, lectures, and meetings for companies and training away from one-sided monologue to inclusive listening. The platform gives participants the opportunity to make their voices heard. Mentimeter has grown organically into a successful global market leader with more than 100 million users around the world. Its primary driving force and success factor is significant user involvement – Mentimeter has an NPS score of 75+!
Mentimeter currently has more than 200 employees, more than 46% of whom were born outside Sweden, representing a total of 40 different nationalities. The company is value-driven and puts emphasis on inclusion and diversity.
In connection with rapid growth, Mentimeter’s VP of People, Anna Gullstrand, wanted to bolster the existing People & Culture team with external HR resources and skills in order to provide additional managerial support during a high-tempo phase in almost all areas of HR.
