Cronofy, an API for calendar services, has raised $1.6 million in seed funding led by Firestartr along with henQ. The UK startup will be using the funds to grow its teams in Nottingham and London.
“This round is all about growing the team and in turn accelerating growth. We have a series of first-rate people ready to join us and we couldn’t be more excited,” said Adam Bird, CEO.
The startup’s API allows developers to integrate their customers’ calendars into their apps, whether it’s for travel services or recruitment and labour platform. Some of Cronofy’s biggest clients include Skyscanner, Zesty, and JobAdder.
“Software developers crave easy ways to embed great functionality into their apps and websites, so we really like Cronofy’s developer-driven route to market,” said chairman of Firestartr, Richard Muirhead.
“Cronofy is a unique and indispensable service for software developers, if done right they could become the timelords of an ever expanding time-driven world”, said Coen van Duiven, partner of henQ, which has much experience working with B2B companies like Cronofy.
