500 Startups’ microfund backs S Korean calendar app startup Day2Life


South Korea-based time management app developer Day2Life has announced that it has raised 100,000,000 KRW (US$100,000) from 500 Kimchi, a microfund managed by leading early-stage incubator-cum-fund 500 Startups.

The startup will use the investment for distribution as well as for monetisation via in-app purchases and from event organisers promoting their events on JUNE.

“When it comes to distribution, we’ve validated our product in Korea which we used as a testbed during the past year. With this investment, we will try to penetrate the US market which is our target market for distribution,” Day2Life Founder Wonil Park told e27.


I am interested in applying design thinking to the business. I love to code in Central Park on weekends and build something people love to use. You can reach me at sehwan@techforkorea.com
