Today, we’re excited to finally announce that we’re part of 500 Startups – one of the world’s leading seed-stage VCs – in their summer 2012 accelerator program.
We’re also announcing we now have over 10,000 registered users who between them have created over 250,000 priorities, over 60% of which have been completed – a completion rate that’s 50% higher than traditional task focused products. People choose Teamly to help them Get The Right Work Done, stay focused and share their achievements with their colleagues. Our mission is about helping our users complete what they set out to do and feel awesome at work because of it.
Although now headquartered in Silicon Valley – just a few miles from Google’s Mountain View headquarters - Teamly started life in London, England. Our founding team is from Scotland, England and California, and our investors and advisors include natives of the Canada, Israel, Pakistan, and both the UK and US. That diversity is reflected in our user base who are from all over the World, from New Zealand to Newfoundland, India to Indiana, and Kenya to Kentucky.
Look out for lots of product enhancements over the coming months!
Finally, to celebrate the unveiling of the new batch at 500 Startups, here’s a video we all put together. It’s called The Funding Games (any similarity to The Hunger Games is entirely intentional!)
A recent study reported by CNN found that how you deal with electronic communication in your life affects your stress level, and therefore your on the job performance.
Researchers at Stanford and Boston University found that it isn’t the actual amount of e-mail you get, but what you do with it that matters when it comes to making you feel behind or out of the loop in the workplace.
What matters is how much time you spend responding to email.
“People who got stressed out had to spend a lot of time reading it and writing,” Prof. Stine Grodal of BU’s School of Management told CNN. “The way that it piles up makes us believe that e-mail is the enemy, the thing that is driving us crazy,” Grodal said.
Stop the insanity of checking email first thing everyday. Yes, email is great. Yes, email helps us. However, the people getting the most done are not checking email first thing in the morning, nor are they checking email throughout the day.
