Congratulations to CEO and co-founder Craig Walker who will be receiving the 2014 Georgetown Entrepreneurial Excellence Award for Outstanding Alumni Entrepreneur. Craig was chosen by the board of the Georgetown Entrepreneurship Alliance for his level of innovation and service to the entrepreneurial community, demonstration of positive impact on business, and other qualities of an entrepreneur and Georgetown graduate. The award will be given as part of Entreprelooza on Georgetown’s campus.
We do our best to listen to feedback from our customers, and we’ve been hearing quite a few requests to give UberConference organizers the ability to choose who receives the summary emails sent after each conference call.
We originally implemented this feature to give meetings more context. The summary emails contain links to any shared documents or recordings, correlating with meeting notes for reference. They also include interesting stats, like who was there and who talked the most and the least.
If UberConference Pro and Business organizers would rather not have the email summaries sent to every participant after the conference ends, they now have the ability to manage that in their settings.
To specify who should receive the conference summaries, go to uberconference.com/settings (when logged in), and scroll all the way down to the “Notification Preferences” section. Under “Call Summary,” you will see the option to disable or enable the conference call summary for participants or for yourself. Don’t forget to click on the “Save Changes” button on the bottom of the page.
We’re continuously trying to make Business features more robust for our customers, and disabling call summary emails is just one of the many ways you can customize your conference calls with UberConference Business. Business users also get advanced features like custom hold music, up to 100 callers, dial out to add guests to call, local conference phone numbers, and more.
UberConference Free users still maintain control over the summary emails for themselves.

It was great sponsoring the Startup Grind event last night that featured the fireside chat with Matt Rogers, co-founder of Nest. The event was packed, and it was nice to see the big turn out and have the opportunity to meet a bunch of new people. It was also cool to be back in Google Start Up Labs, where the event was hosted, which was also the first office for Firespotter, though in those early days we were in the building across the street. The new building is even nicer.
Matt shared a number of interesting learnings and experiences from his career starting from getting his dream job at Apple as an intern on the early iPod team through his success founding Nest. It was interesting to hear about the secrecy and corporate culture inside of Apple and how that translated into successful PR for the company. Matt talked about how many of the things he learned and people he met at Apple evolved into the strategies he used and people he hired at Nest. He also shared several insightful tips on founding a company, creating great products, working with VCs, and building a rock star team.
