)-- MeetingWave.com has been selected by the Connecticut Technology Council as a 2009 Company to Watch in recognition of its unique technology which helps members arrange meetings with new people for business or social purposes over coffee, lunch, golf or any other meeting activity. The Connecticut Technology Council, the State’s industry association for the technology sector, annually recognizes companies with sales under $5 Million, an innovative product or service and a business model that demonstrates potential for future success.
MeetingWave's CEO John Boyd attributes this honor to the company’s patented technology that allows members to control both who they meet and whether the meeting happens. This technology provides flexibility, privacy and control to each member.
“Face-to-face networking is still critically important whether you are looking for your next client, customer or job”, says Boyd, “However, people are busier than ever so we’ve built a tool that connects you with the people you need to know. Our features give you control over who you meet, and protects your identity online.”
