Building a better calendar, every day.
Jeremy and I started Sunrise a few months with the vision that a better calendar was not just a dream, it’s something we could build as designers.
We could imagine how much a new calendar would improve the life of millions of people everyday. We had to do it – or at least try.
Today, I’m excited to announce an important step for all Sunrise lovers. We’ve secured our first round of funding from investors and angels.
I’m very happy that Mike Hirshland @ Resolute and Rob Go @ NextView Ventures are co-leading our $2.2M round with Jordan Cooper @ Lerer Ventures, Kevin Carter @ SV Angel, Adam Rothenberg & David Tisch @ BoxGroup, Shai Goldman @ 500 Startups and John Maloney @ Terrapin Bale.
We are lucky enough to welcome amazing angels too: Dave Morin (Path), David King (Blippy), Andrew Kortina (Venmo), Adam Nash (LinkedIn), Elliot Shmukler (LinkedIn), Hunter Walk (Youtube), Gustaf Alströmer (Airbnb), Loic Le Meur (Le Web), Bill Lee (Twist) and Adam Mosseri (Facebook).
I want to say a special thanks to the angels that have been supporting us since the beginning of this adventure: Henrik Werdelin (Prehype), Naveen Selvadurai & Tristan Walker (Foursquare), Adam Rothenberg and David Tisch (BoxGroup), Ilan Abehassera (Producteev), Taavet Hinrikus (TransferWise), Sten Tamkivi (Skype), Ott Kaukver (Skype), Julien Genestoux (Superfeedr), Davy Kestens (TwitSpark), Clement Calazot (DocTrackr), Thomas France (Prixing), Fabrice Grinda and Jose Marin.
We’ve picked investors and angels that are passionate about the problem we are solving and deeply believe that design can have a big impact.
Dear users, investors, angels and friends, thanks so much for your support. Let the ride continue.
Update: you can read the blog post from Resolute about their investment in Sunrise.
