Popular scheduling platform Calendly has been ranked in the top 25 on Forbes’ Cloud 100 list.
The Black-owned company was founded in 2013 by Tope Awotona in an effort to remove the headache of scheduling and revise how people manage their meetings.
“The idea for the company came from a frustrating experience I had scheduling a meeting – many emails later, we were still no closer to finding a time,” said Awotona.
Using automated technology, Calendly gives users the ability to sync their calendars to the platform, send out links so people can see their availability and pick a meeting time based on the users’ openings.
Currently, the company has over 10 million users, including 50,000 companies such as Asana and Lyft. Calendly is valued at $3 billion and is likely to continue rising in the ranks of prominence as more companies embrace asynchronous scheduling.
