What: Paris-based Routine has created a productivity tool to make it easier to take notes, schedule meetings, and create lists of tasks.
Why: Despite the proliferation of productivity tools and apps, the hunger remains for better and more efficient tools to help manage the tide of information.
Seed round: $2.7 million (pre-seed)
Investors: Y Combinator, BoxGroup (Superhuman, Trello, Sunrise, Airtable etc.), TargetGlobal (Cazoo, BlueApron, Delivery Hero, etc.), and business angels, including Matt Robinson (GoCardless & Nested), Clement Delangue (HuggingFace), and Ian Hogarth (Songkick).
Next: Routine is still in the development phase. The app is available to a limited number of users. The company, which has 8 employees, is looking to make some strategic hires will also continue to refine the product.
