At Spot, our goal is to help professionals find a better balance between work and life.
We believe in a world where you can have productive, collaborative, virtual interactions with coworkers while doing things that promote a healthier, happier you.
We believe that the ability to take your meetings on the move increases engagement, sparks creativity, and decreases burnout.
Whether you are a walker, a pacer or a sun-seeker - we created Spot for you.
Spot co-founders, Greg Caplan and Hans Petter (HP) Eikemo, were working remotely before working remotely was the cool thing to do.
From the beginning, they’ve been finding ways to hack digital tools to continue to lead productive, efficient, and collaborative remote teams. While they, and their employees, were enjoying the freedoms that come with remote working, there were some challenges. Challenges that all boiled down to communication.
At the time, remote working was relatively new so their teams defaulted to using video calls. Soon after, Greg and HP, realized that their new freedom was only as far as the wifi signal reached and their new found freedom was feeling awfully sedentary.
So like any innovative duo, the two found ways to hack traditional video calls to be a bit more mobile. What they found was more than a greater sense of freedom - they felt more engaged in the meetings, more creative, and were feeling happier and healthier overall.
Nearly a decade later, they’ve combined forces to bring Spot to life. A tool that helps make the remote lifestyle work for you. It allows users to continue to collaborate and produce top-notch work while finding balance in their daily routines for an all around happier and healthier lifestyle - no matter where you are.
