Fishers-based Dockett, a meeting management software company launched in 2019, closed after meeting platform provider Zoom hired all its staff.
Docket’s CEO announced the move on social media this week.
“We are very excited to announce that the Docket team has officially joined Zoom,” Docket co-founder and CEO Darin Brown said in a statement posted to LinkedIn. .
“This is just the beginning for us. We intend to bring the full vision of what we had at Docket to Zoom,” wrote Brown. “Please join the ride.”
Docket started out of Indianapolis-based venture studio High Alpha. Docket’s meeting management software allows users to collaborate online by creating and sharing documents, taking notes, searching for previous meeting documents and more from a single platform.
Brown’s LinkedIn announcement did not provide details such as when his team was hired by Zoom or how many people worked at Docket. Brown did not respond directly to the message from his IBJ, but Zoom sent a prepared statement on Brown’s behalf in response to the query.
“The Docket team is excited to team up with Zoom to continue our focus on making meetings more efficient,” Brown said in a statement. “Over the past four years, we have helped tens of thousands of customers run more productive meetings and improve their execution speed. Joining Zoom is a natural next step in our evolution. Yes, and I am excited about the journey.”
Zoom told IBJ in an email that it has “hired less than 10 Docket staff to help accelerate.” [Zoom’s] product roadmap, and that Docket retired on its own in September.
Prior to co-founding Docket, he was Chief Technology Officer at Angie’s List and Vice President at ExactTarget and Salesforce. While on Angie’s List, Brown was named the winner of his CTO of the Year for his 2016 class at IBJ.
Zoom and Docket have a history of working together.
Docket’s platform is integrated with Zoom, and in May 2020, Docket won Zoom’s “Whale Watch” app marketplace competition, raising 1.25 million dollars from Sequoia Capital, Emergence Capital, Horizons Ventures and Maven Ventures. It led to a dollar venture investment.
The investment was an extension of a $1.5 million seed round Docket secured in January of that year, led by Indianapolis-based Allos Ventures, with participation from Alpha Capital, Elevate Ventures and Simon Equity Partners. .
