Yesterday, First Round Capital has decided to join Ram Shriram of Sherpalo Ventures for investing into Stikkit’s Series A round of funding. The announcement was published in the Stikkit Values of N blog and was also covered by StartupSquad. Stikkit is based in Portland, Oregon and the Stikkit team is lead by Rael Dornfest, a former CTO of O’Reilly Media.
Stikkit allows users to save information and transfer it to various other event-tracking applications such as Microsoft Outlook, Google Calendar, iCal, and 30Boxes. According to StartupSquad, users can also transfer to-do lists, directories, and bookmarks using Stikkit as well.
First Round’s funding was influenced by Rael spending time with First Round managing partner, Josh Kopelman during the early stages of Stikkit development. Through the funding, First Round partner, Rob Hayes entered the Stikkit Board. Hayes then influenced Rael and the Stikkit team to share office space with Platial, “The People’s Atlas” technology company.
Personally, I have not tested out Stikkit since I stopped creating to-do lists after graduating college, but I do believe that Stikkit software would be useful for those who are dependent on computers for their daily event-tracking needs. Below is a screenshot from StartupSquad:
