Mindjet and Spigit Merge to Offer Repeatable Business Innovation
Mindjet and Spigit: Collaboration Meets Innovation
I’m excited to announce that Mindjet is merging with privately-held innovation leader Spigit, bringing together Mindjet’s historical expertise in project-based collaboration and Spigit’s renowned proficiency in enterprise innovation management.
Spigit is a great company with amazing people, and has an outstanding track record in the marketplace. Over two million users worldwide and 3,000 companies use Spigit to make innovation a mission-critical and repeatable business process. In 2012, Inc. Magazine listed Spigit as the fastest growing private software company in California, and they continued to build momentum with record-breaking revenue growth during the 2013 fiscal year.
I’m confident that together, we’ll bring incredible value to our customers.
Purposeful and Social
Today’s companies want more than collaboration for the sake of communication alone. They want and need technologies that help them get work done and drive real results. Mindjet and Spigit have the DNA to do exactly that. By joining forces, we’re giving our customers a brand new way to effectively manage innovation from idea creation to opportunity selection, and finally, to project completion.
Up for the Innovation Challenge
A recent Bain & Company survey found that two-thirds of enterprise executives named innovation as one of their top three priorities — and as CEO of a technology company, I can certainly empathize. I’m nothing if not driven to innovate for our customers.
Unlike current Social Business offerings, Mindjet + Spigit support the full Vision to Action™ Lifecycle, which applies a proven framework to the process of innovation.

Teams can use crowdsourcing, mind mapping, big data analytics, and game mechanics technology to surface and develop great ideas – but more importantly, they’ll be able to bring those ideas to market with a purpose-driven project management suite.
Mindjet + Spigit: Putting Ideas to Work
In the new, expanded Mindjet organization, we’ll continue to be dedicated to Mindjet MindManager, ProjectDirector, and Spigit Engage. Our combined powers of scale, scope, expertise, and thought leadership will benefit our current and future customers, allowing them to be more productive, more innovative, and more successful. Our immediate geographic expansion will better serve an amplified global base. And with a continued commitment to innovation and access to double the resources in R&D and technology capabilities, we’ll be able to accelerate development for each of our products and enhance delivery of new solutions to our customers.
In the upcoming months I look forward to sharing deeper insights into how we will continue to deliver value to you.
