There are a lot of things that demand attention day-to-day, and although that is true for everyone, it is particularly true for businesses and professionals. Cal.com is one of the solutions to a busy day, providing open-source scheduling that helps people bring some order to their day. If you want to know more about what Cal.com is doing and how they plan to empower people and developers with their latest funding, check out the official announcement below.
REMOTE – April 15, 2022– Cal.com, the leader in open source scheduling, today announced a $25 million Series A funding round led by Seven Seven Six with participation of ObviousVentures, OSS Capital, Jack Altman, Tobi Lutke, Anthony Pompliano, and many more.
Cal.com is the first open scheduling platform to offer developer-first open source functionality, making scheduling accessible to businesses, governments, nonprofits and consumers.
Today, Cal.com launches their new initiative of making time programmable with the App Store for Time, which empowers developers to build entire time-based apps on top of the existing scheduling infrastructure without rebuilding calendar-APIs and timezone calculations from scratch.
Following the $7.4 million seed round announced in December 2021, the company will use its new round of financing to empower developers to launch a range of new apps in their new App Store for Time, and become the best developer platform for building anything and everything time related: productivity apps, hiring marketplace, telehealth provider or government appointment software.
“We were searching for scheduling infrastructure as we built Cerebro, the operating system that powers 776, and stumbled on Cal.com. It only took a few minutes to realize not just how valuable this would be to our product, but to millions of people all over the world,” said Alexis Ohanian, Founder of Seven Seven Six. “Making time programmable is an audacious goal, but everything we’ve seen from this team and platform so far is showing a clear path to achieving it in a world where more of our life will be connected with software.”
With Cal.com’s open source core, the goal is to put users first and give them the ability to customize their own scheduler with everything from customer data to workflow and costs. Their infrastructure is integrable with multiple existing platforms – including Outlook, Google Calendar, iCal, Google Meet, and Zoom, among others.
The release of the App Store for Time further opens the door for developers to build and launch time-based apps. With its open core, a newly launched developer API and a range of embed options, Cal.com truly means scheduling for everyone.
