Company description

The ability to show people what you’re talking about is essential to all the most important shared experiences, including social interactions with friends and family, collaborating with the people we work with, and teaching and being taught.  

A MingleRoom boldly attempts to provide an alternative to having a meeting with people in a physical space.  A MingleRoom gives you all the same powers you have in a physical venue – talking and being heard, being able to show things to the other people present, hearing what they have to say, and being able to see what they show.

A MingleRoom also gives you powers you could never have in a physical meeting, such as the ability to include people from anywhere in the world in your meeting and have access to a 10GB personal document library hosted in the cloud.  Anyone can show pretty much anything to pretty much anyone in a MingleRoom.  We even let you sell tickets to virtual “events” you may wish to host in your MingleRoom.

A basic MingleRoom is totally free and gives you everything you need to have a really good time with friends and family.  Pro Plans give you a document library and a few other whistles and bells

Business model

Mingle Room hosts can upgrade to MinglePro for only $9.99/month.  Upgraded Mingle Rooms have a larger capacity, access to business features such as desktop broadcasting, and also have privacy options.

Hosts have the ability to charge for their Mingle through our full MingleVite and MingleTicket service which guarantees the host gets paid for hosting a live mingle. Mingleverse adds 10% service fee on the ticket price but rebates the Mingle Room fee.

Competitive advantage

Mingleverse is the 1st to provide this type of synchronous communications service directly to consumers with a freemium model.

Mingleverse has over 25 patents in the pipline.

Mingleverse has already attracted some major opprtunities like the National Hockey League that cannot be serviced by Telcos or 3D based Virtual worlds.
