The Evolution of Mimio Educational Technology

Posted by Manuel Perez on Mon, Jun 18, 2012
Manuel Perez Mimio

It is hard to believe that Mimio got its start out of a dorm room nearly 15 years ago. So much has changed over the years, both for me and the company, yet many things have remained, surprisingly, the same. 

From a Personal Perspective

When the company started I was a young college student. I joined the founding team as a software engineer. Now, years later, I am a (mostly) functional adult and have assumed the role of General Manager for the entire business. But what has remained the same is my love for technology, innovation, and product design, and my overall excitement about coming to work each day. While I dearly miss designing software and writing code, I now have a broader view of the business and have had the opportunity to work on many different and exciting things, such as industrial design, web design, and branding.

From a Business Perspective

When the company started, we were focused on solving the problem of digitally capturing notes from a whiteboard, so that students could pay better attention in class. This innovative idea led us to develop our first-generation pen tracking system. Over the years we have grown from being a technology supplier to being a provider of educational solutions. Throughout this transformation we have continued our simple tradition of visiting real classrooms and solving real problems. This process led to the development of our MimioClassroom suite of products and will continue to serve us as we move forward with our purpose of making learning more effective and engaging.

Where We're Headed

I am looking forward to seeing what the next 16 years will bring, both for me personally and for Mimio. We are always adapting and always changing, but some of the more important things remain the same. We still have the goal of making learning more effective and engaging. And I am still as excited as that young college kid to come to work every day.
