Our Growth Story

2008

Frustrated by how hard it was to book an appointment with her massage therapist, Katherine Regnier, CEO & Founder believed there must be a better way. Booking a flight required a more sophisticated approach but was easier to do. With a $5K loan and a pencil sketch, the idea for Coconut Software was born (the original company name was 24 HR Assistant).

 

2010

Romeo Iula joined Coconut as a part-time engineer while holding a full-time position at the same digital agency as Katherine. Coconut focused on selling to SMBs, and started to make progress with part-time attention.

2011

  • May 2011, the wildly successful launch of TELUS Learning Centres across Canada inspired Katherine, along with Romeo Iula to take a chance, quit their full-time jobs and turn Coconut from a side company into a full-time gig.
  • The Company name was changed to Coconut Calendar.
