Episode 94: The Best Day founder Whitney Komor

Whitney KomorFounder Whitney Komor had the idea for The Best Day following a frustrating attempt at organising a weekend away with her girlfriends. She thought it would be easier to lock in your group if you could send them time, date and place options, and invite each person to vote based on their availability and preferences. In March 2013 The Best Day closed a $1M investment round to fund the launch of the social scheduling platform.
