Woven, a Mountain View, CA-based an intelligent calendar app for professionals, raised $4.8M in seed funding.
The round was led by Battery Ventures with participation from Amplify Partners, Felicis Ventures, and other individual investors.
Co-founded by Burc Arpat (left), a former engineering leader at Facebook and Google, and Timothy Campos (right), a former Facebook CIO, Woven brings advanced collaboration capabilities to existing calendar software to allow people to be more productive.
The company’s Woven app, an intelligent calendar for busy professionals, available on both mobile and web, manages time pulling together every stage of the calendar lifecycle – planning, scheduling, preparation, meeting, and follow-up – and puts it into a smart and cohesive view. It uses AI and a rich calendar graph engine to create “weaves” or plans for how the user wants to spend his or her time. Weaves exist both before and after an event is scheduled, and they can connect any set of information, such as the user’s email messages, Google Docs, maps, and more, to an event.
Multiple users can collaboratively edit a weave, which works with and extends existing calendaring systems such as G Suite and, in the future, Office 365.
The app can perform tasks automatically as well as on request. And Woven will continue to learn from each interaction, getting smarter to give users insight into how they use time so that they can make adjustments according to priorities.
The Woven app currently works with and extends Google Calendar, part of G Suite. To download the Woven app and add intelligence to your calendar, go to woven.com or download Woven from the iTunes App Store.
