The Companies join forces to lead the emerging market of smart calendars
Chili Piper, the leading qualifying, routing & scheduling platform for revenue teams, has acquired KosmoTime, a smart calendar solution helping its users better manage their time.
“KosmoTime is a pioneer in smart time management,” said Alina Vandenberghe, co-founder and co-CEO of Chili Piper. “It has established a strong base of highly engaged users around a unique expertise both in User Experience and Data Science. We’re thrilled to bring this expertise into the Chili Piper team to build the next generation of calendars.”
“KosmoTime was founded on the idea that we may have many calendars, but we only have one time, with many activities competing for that time,” said Martin Plouy, co-founder & CTO of KosmoTime. “We originally focused on time blocking for tasks completion, but we quickly realized that the full solution had to also address meetings & scheduling. That’s why we’re thrilled to join forces with Chili Piper, the most advanced scheduling solution.”
“This merger makes perfect sense,” said TJ Nahigian, partner at Base10VC, one of the backers of Chili Piper, together with Flashpoint VC, Google’s Gradient Ventures and Tiger Global. “Alina and Nicolas Vandenberghe were co-founders of both companies. As the solutions for B2B scheduling and intelligent time management start converging, they will be able to focus all their time and energy on the winning platform to serve this new market.”
KosmoTime’s CTO Martin Plouy will serve as Director of Engineering, with a focus on UX and Data Science. Nicolas Vandenberghe will remain co-CEO of Chili Piper.
