fruux GmbH, a Münster, Germany-based start up that develops a cross-platform sync and backup solution for contacts, calendars and to-dos through the cloud, has raised a seed funding of undisclosed amount.
The company intends to use the capital to continue to build out its technology and extend the team (https://fruux.com/jobs/), which will allows to move the product to move from individual usage to a solution for teams and companies.
Started in 2007 as a bootstrapped student project, fruux was founded in December 2010 by CEO Dominik Tobschall to solve the problem of working with contacts, calendars and task across different devices in a cross-platform environment. It uses open standards such as CardDAV and CalDAV, which makes it easy to deploy across different devices and many different vendors.
With roots in the Apple ecosystem, the product is currently being used by small teams like agencies and architects as well as individual users. In the future the company’s main focus is supporting additional platforms and the development of features specifically for teams and companies.
