“Hugo has set the standard for innovation and creativity on the Internet,” said Claire Graves, Executive Director of The Webby Awards. “This award is a testament to the skill, ingenuity, and vision of its creators.”
“To be awarded in such a competitive category is humbling," said Josh Lowy, Hugo's co-founder and CEO. "For a lot of people, meetings are one of the worst parts of going to work. Each month, our app helps thousands more teams with their agendas, meeting notes, and action item tracking. It means fewer, shorter, better meetings for everyone. The Webby really acknowledges how important that is to the future of work."
Hugo will be honored at the star-studded Internet Celebration on Tuesday, May 18, 2020 at 3pm ET.
