What is Calendly?
Calendly exists to make life easy for business professionals and their customers by creating simple, beautiful scheduling software. Calendly users save time, sell more, sell faster and provide speedy customer service by eliminating email and phone tag for scheduling meetings and appointments.
What’s your traction been like thus far?
Close to 50,000 people have used the service to schedule meetings & raised $350k seed round.
What do you know now that you wish you would have known when you started Calendly?
There haven’t been too many surprises or incorrect hypotheses. I’d started businesses before Calendly so I wasn’t naive about the hard work and challenges we might possibly encounter. Having said that, we’ve learned a lot in the past year and we learn much more every day.
What’s your favorite thing about being an entrepreneur?
Freedom and the ability to control my destiny.
