Amie earns $7 million for the critically acclaimed calendar and to-do app • TechCrunch

lover raised a $7 million seed round due to capital sparks. The round is over June 2022 and the startup is unveiling it today. The company is building a productivity app based on your calendar. It helps you stay on top of your schedule, connect with your team, and manage your upcoming tasks.

Other investors in the round include Creandum, Guillermo Rauch, Hanno Renner and Quick Coffee Ventures. Amie competes with a new wave of calendar startups, including vimcal, Miracle, great, Cron and Rise. It’s a crowded space but Amie thinks it can provide a better user experience.

As I wrote in First post on Amie, the app that combines your calendar with your todos. By default, your to-dos appear in the left column next to your calendar.

You can drag tasks from the sidebar and drop them into your calendar at a certain date and time. This way you can see both your events and tasks in a week view. Many people already use their calendar as a kind of to-do app so they don’t forget the things they have to do.

Amie supports that use case natively and even encourages you to work this way. It’s an opinion on the calendar. But it’s the right approach if you’re building an application that competes with Microsoft Outlook and Google Calendar.

There are also social and multiplayer components to Amie. If your team uses Amie, you can see their profile picture on the left side and check their availability by hovering over their avatar. It’s also a good way to see if someone is available or busy in real time.

Amie also allows you to join an upcoming video call with a single click. People can also use Amie to send a link that has multiple availability so others can book a meeting.

Next, Amie wants to integrate with all the tools and apps you already use to be your primary productivity hub. The company first started with Spotify so you can see what your colleagues are listening to.

But Amie also has plans for more business-oriented integrations with products like GitHub, Stripe, and Typeform. The idea is that Amie can eventually replace more tools.

Users who want to try Amie must subscribe to the waiting list. The company introduces new users every week and plans to go public at some point in 2023.

Currently, there are 11 people working for Amie. The startup wants to grow into a team of 20 people. The next product release will be an improved to-do list.
