Ethan Anderson
Ethan Anderson
Founder and CEO

Founded by serial technology entrepreneur Ethan Anderson (winner of TechCrunch50 in 2009 for his previous startup, Redbeacon) and backed by Upfront Ventures and Khosla Ventures, MyTime is the most convenient way to book appointments online with over two million businesses nationwide.

Consumers can visit or use the native iPhone or Android apps to schedule appointments for haircuts, massages, dog grooming and many more services with businesses around them. MyTime makes it easy to organize your life when it’s convenient for you.  How did you come up with the concept behind MyTime?  What pain point are you solving?

Ethan:  At Redbeacon, we connected consumers with local service providers in the home services space, focusing primarily on services that needed quotes such as plumbing and roof repairs. However, I realized there were millions of businesses offering fixed price services – such as haircuts and oil changes – that were not widely discoverable or bookable online.

The pain point we’re solving is two-fold: We let consumers instantly check availability, book appointments and pay for services online. They no longer have to call around during business hours looking for availability.  In the process of building this product, we realized that many small businesses don’t show their availability online today. So we built the online software tools that businesses can use to manage their bookings and communications with clients.  MyTime is really pushing the online-to-offline commerce movement forward, which benefits local businesses and consumers alike.  How does it work?  Can you share some tips for a first time user?

AJ Shankar
CEO and Founder

Everlaw is a legal technology company serving 8 of the top 10 class action law firms and over 65% of state attorneys general. The company is building the world’s most advanced litigation platform, beginning with ediscovery, by making the most cutting-edge technology accessible with elegant and intuitive design. Its ease-of-use, blink speed, frequent user-driven updates, and predictable pricing set it apart in the ediscovery industry.  Can you expand on how Everlaw is changing the way litigation works by combining serious computer science with a cutting-edge user experience?

AJ: We want to bring a consumer sensibility to the use of technical legal products. Attorneys shouldn’t have to hate the software they use. There’s no technical reason that a litigation tool can’t be as fast as Google and as easy-to-use as an iPad. We strive for that goal every day. It turns out that, unsurprisingly, achieving it requires marrying the deep technical know-how of a Google with the design sense and discipline of an Apple. We think that’s a recipe for success in an enterprise space that has often suffered from a slow, complex, and frustrating user experience.
