Hugo Meetings

Scattered. Confounding. Ceaseless. But we're not here to gripe about how meetings used to be. That's not productive. That doesn't respect your time. And that — well, that's just not our thing.

You’re here for Hugo meetings: momentous togetherness in every moment together. You’re here because you’ve had the same epiphany: so much about work has changed, too much about meetings has remained the same.

As the only app that helps you fully realize the rewards of remote work, Hugo understands that the key to performance isn’t a tool — it’s culture and connection. It’s true. It’s what we do.

We're talking about the glue that binds teams and the goodness that bonds people. Collaboration that makes your screen glow a little bit brighter. New templates and techniques (call it muscle memory) that make workloads feel lighter. Communication that not only quickens your pace but creates shared headspace — in the Zoom room and beyond, in real-time and all the time. That’s synergy. That’s success. That’s community, through Hugo.

So, meetings — you’ll master them. You’ll never lose a note. You’ll always know where every document is. Your calendar will transform into something out of a sci-fi flick, where a single click morphs into a — well, you’ll see. (Seriously, you will fall in love with your calendar.) And most importantly, good team members will transform into better teammates, and they’ll say thank you — for real, thank you — for helping us feel confident and connected.

Connection? It might be elusive in today’s world, but it’s everywhere when Hugo’s at work. That’s because we’ve harnessed a revolutionary way of working. And because we put our heart into your meetings.

Our story

Meet the efficiency-obsessed product manager who teamed up with the attorney who hates meetings.

Josh & Darren

Josh and Darren are two Australian-native co-founders who started Hugo with a simple question: Why has technology improved so much about work, but done so little to improve meetings?

Fast forward a few epiphanies, and it became clear that meeting notes were about more than jotting things down. With Hugo, we've discovered ways to become deeply aligned, incredibly customer-centric, and 10x more efficient — simply by centralizing meeting notes, sharing them, and integrating them into our tech stack.

Careers at Hugo

Today, Hugo is the leader in meeting notes, powering meetings for thousands of teams across 100+ countries.

Hugo is the only meeting notes solution centered around your calendar, where meetings originate. We’re purpose-built for meeting notes specifically, unlike cumbersome CRMs or disorganized scratchpads like Google Docs.

Plus, Hugo connects with the software you use every day. Keep your tech stack the way it is. But when you meet, take notes and delegate tasks from a centralized system that works with everything else.

Hugo's investors include Google's early-stage fund and Slack's investment arm.

Help us enable the future of meetings

We’re a user-obsessed, decentralized team. We value candor, embrace remote culture, and use the best technology. Join us and help solve one of the most significant challenges for modern teams.
