Reading Time: 2 minutes

OFFLIGHT, a Korean personal daily planning tool, has attracted seed funding. Designed to optimize users’ goal achievement, OFFLIGHT’s investment round was led by Mashup Ventures, with BASS Investment and TheVentures as co-investors.

Co-CEOs Hong Nam-ho and Kim Jin-hong, both serial entrepreneurs, developed OFFLIGHT to address issues such as work fragmentation and productivity declines caused by the proliferation of SaaS tools.

OFFLIGHT is aimed at those who wish to efficiently use their limited time, with a focus on goal setting. It enables users to manage tasks and calendar events from platforms like Notion, Slack, and Gmail in one unified space, facilitating goal setting and task prioritization based on an aggregated task list.

Through OFFLIGHT’s integration with Google Calendar, users can schedule and prioritize tasks, effectively planning when to address them. The drag-and-drop functionality simplifies task organization in the calendar, while the time block format helps in planning work schedules. Moreover, a timer feature allows users to monitor the time spent on each task and the total time dedicated to achieving their goals, offering a clear view of personal time management.

Since its launch in August, OFFLIGHT has created an optimized workflow for its users, generating over 35,000 tasks within the service. It has also been recognized for its technological prowess and growth potential, winning the grand prize at the 12th Chung Ju-yung Startup Competition hosted by the Asan Nanum Foundation.

Lee Taekyung, CEO of Mashup Ventures, who led the investment, commented, “The advent of various SaaS solutions has resulted in the fragmentation of work tools, creating a significant demand for an integrated interface. With a team comprised of serial entrepreneurs and individuals experienced in SaaS, OFFLIGHT is poised for expansion into the global market, driven by its swift execution and technical capabilities.”

Hong Nam-ho, CEO of OFFLIGHT, stated, “This investment will enable us to accelerate our expansion into the U.S. market. Our long-term vision for OFFLIGHT is to develop a service that acts like an assistant, learning each user’s task management patterns to prioritize and schedule tasks based on their importance.”
