Thursday, January 15, 2009

Patent Covers Its Online Tool for Offline Networking Meetings

Ridgefield, CT -- TTB Technologies, LLC, owner of the online tool for offline networking MeetingWave (, has been granted a second United States patent (US 7,483,946) entitled "Computer-Based Networking Service and Method and System for Performing the Same" with broad claims covering computer-based methods for arranging a meeting between two or more people. The full patent, based on an application filed in February 2000, can be viewed on the United States Patent and Trademark Office website under published documents:

"We are pleased with the issuance of this patent covering online methods that allow individuals to arrange networking meetings with other people for business, professional or social purposes" said John Boyd, CEO and Founder. "This is a significant addition to our growing intellectual property estate, which already includes US Patent No. 6,963,900. We anticipate the issuance of additional patents covering technologies for networking offline in the future."


MeetingWave is a free online tool for networking off-line for business, professional or social reasons allowing its members to set up networking meetings that are open to people they have never met. MeetingWave is laser focused on providing a flexible versatile online tool that allows members to meet new clients, network with others in their industry, recruit new team members, connect with potential investors, find new opportunities, or make new business contacts or friends.

Members can create Public Invites to offline face-to-face meetings that specify the types of people they want to network with or the purpose of their networking meeting. MeetingWave would then notify the member by email each time someone accepts their Public Invite. They must then approve or decline each acceptance -- and can do so for any reason. MeetingWave then notifies the other individuals whether he or she may attend the member’s meeting. Only "approved" individuals may attend. Thus, the member who posted the Public Invite ultimately controls whether the meeting will happen and who may attend.

Members can post Invites for coffee, lunch, drinks or any other networking meeting. Or, a member can browse through Public Invites posted by others and accept those of interest.
