Mindjet is a mind mapping and innovation management software company headquartered in San Francisco, California. Mindjets software products, including its flagship product MindManager and SpigitEngage, are designed to visually and collaboratively manage information and tasks. As of December 2011[update], Mindjet had approximately two million users. Mindjet was founded in 1998 by computer programmer Mike Jetter and his wife, Bettina Jetter, in order to support the development of their mind mapping software, MindManager. Jetter conceived of the idea for the first product while recovering from an illness in hospital, and began developing the program while living in Germany in 1994, aiming to simplify the creation and sharing of mind maps for business users. In August 2001, Mindjet received approximately $5 million in venture capital from London-based investment group 3i, which the company used to market MindManager in the U.S. and Europe. Scott Raskin, the former chief operating officer for Telelogic, was named CEO of Mindjet in 2006. In 2011, the company acquired Thinking Space, an Android-based information mapping application, and Cohuman, a social task management service. The acquisition of Cohuman enabled Mindjet to launch a new collaborative working service called Mindjet Connect on September 22, 2011.
