Life under COVID-19 is stressful as it is, so any company making individuals’ and companies’ lives easier is riding the success wave right now. Such is the case for Calendly, the popular tech startup that allows people to navigate this new world of endless online meetings. The privately-owned firm recently raised $350m in an investment round, upping its value to $3b.
For those who are not familiar with this unicorn company yet (a term used to refer to private startups that are worth over $1b), it essentially allows people to organize their appointments on a user-friendly planner that syncs with existing calendars (such as Microsoft Outlook) and integrates with video conferencing tools (such as Zoom). They offer free services as well as premium features.
