Burbio is a calendar network for local communities that brings together school, sports and community calendars, and gives residents a personalized resource.
Burbio.com is a calendar network for local communities that focuses on the all-important “When.” Burbio streams public calendar feeds from school, government, non-profit, and sports calendars and has a free calendar publishing tool that creates a comprehensive resource for residents.
Burbio’s calendar technology enables a community to be built out in minutes and can be expanded nationally with low overhead.
Burbio.s serves communities through an email digest of important hyper-local events, a localized home page, a community calendar, and the ability for residents to add and sync events to their Google or Apple calendar and follow for updates. It achieves quick adoption in a community due to the unique service it provides.
Burbio’s business has reached an inflection point as it has identified a model to rapidly expand. After perfecting the model with a four town test in the Spring of 2015, in August 2015 Burbio began adding 5-10 towns a month, and as of March 31st is in 60 communities across Westchester, Fairfield, Bergen, Morris, Union, Passaic and Rockland Counties., Burbio has proven highly popular in upscale markets such as Larchmont, NY, Scarsdale, NY, and Pelham Manor, NY, and has achieved terrific reception in recent communities such as Westport, CT, and Wyckoff, NJ.
Burbio currently sells sponsorships – having sold over 70 advertisers since September 1st – and has plans to charge for premium services. Burbio’s hyper-local, accurate information is also perfect for the evolution of mobile as over 60% of its users currently access Burbio from a mobile phone.
With a small seed round Burbio will be able to expand nationally and aggregate the entire local calendar ecosystem.
