Josh Lowy, CEO and co-founder of Hugo, a connected meeting notes company
Native to Australia and based in San Francisco, Josh is most excited about the era of innovation we are continuing to experience at work — while the last decade of progress energized us as consumers, it is now our tools and teams at work that are riding a wave of competition and progress. He’s seen firsthand the incredible power of decentralized decision-making and distributed teams, where every member is empowered by information and given the autonomy to execute.
However there is still one major barrier - meetings. Meetings shape teamwork and yet they remain largely unchanged and disconnected. Those that miss a meeting don’t benefit from what was discussed and actioned, and the software that powers our workflows are being left behind, at the conference room door. That led to the creation of Hugo — connected meeting notes software — with the purpose of uniting meetings with the people and tools that we rely on every day.
Previously a product manager at Westfield Retail Solutions where Josh worked on wayfinding solutions for brands, to convert online shopper intent into offline purchases. He studied at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia.
