Powering calendar everywhere.

StartUp School 2013

Charles Feng, SpotON co-founder, attended StartUp School 2013 in Cupertino this past Saturday. This is what he had to say about this unforgettable experience,

"The content of each talk was inspiring, but the real takeaway from the day was the intensity each speaker brought to the podium. All of them have been through countless obstacles, many of which we audience members were intimately familiar with, and their killer instinct — their survivability — gave meaning and a goal to all of our struggles. You could tell it brought fire to everyone’s hearts; even after sitting through a long day of talks, the attendees talked and networked with renewed determination well past sundown."

SpotOn.it now in NYC, Boston, Chicago & Austin 
Yes, we’re totally doing things.
Last June - the idea for SpotOn.it was hatched - a simple calendar plug-in that would turn empty time-slots into wondrous opportunities. We launched our private beta with a small testbed of parents, nervously excited about how they would take to it. Our expectations were blown away with 70% of our test users attending at least one of the events we recommended.Fast forward, 3 months - we launched the redesigned version of the website and got positive feedback on design and ease of use. Going against the grain and *not* creating another mobile app worked! Mostly, we learned what people were falling in love with - the fact that ideas were coming to them instead of having to do the work.
This past February, we graduated from the winter StartX class, and were covered as one of the top 5 startups by the likes of Digital Trends, TechCrunch, Xconomy and even made the cover of Stanford Daily.
 60 days later, we’re now ready to announce that we are launching in NYC, Boston, Chicago & Austin. We’ve partnered with a fantastic set of bloggers who’ve created immensely creative wishlists for you to follow. SpotOn.it now has:

Smarter recommendations - for each empty time-slot, you’ll be able to see what you’ve done in the past before seeing your recommendation.


Wishlists - use them for holding ideas before they land on your calendar and to inspire your followers. 


Following - there’s always that one person in your community who’s in the know - follow them to stay on top of what’s going on. 

And we’re in TechCrunch + PandoDaily!!
