Tinket: The calendar that makes scheduling easy

Tinket was founded in 2016 by Hayes Batson, Michael Sigel and Elliot Robia based on the idea that scheduling a meeting should be as easy as sending a text.

Supported by $3 million of seed funding, Tinket's Saint Paul-based team is working to create a platform that will bring work, service and social scheduling together in one place.

After 6 months of beta testing, the company will launch it’s first product—an iPhone calendar app built for scheduling—later this month.

The app is designed for people who need to find times and places to meet with others whose calendars they can’t see. It works for one-on-one and group meetings, phone and conference calls, and virtual meetings.

Tinket users can schedule with anyone—invitees can respond from email without signing up or downloading the app—and can request meetings easily, track and manage meetings and automate scheduling logistics.

Come support Tinket – and 10 other amazing startups – at our upcoming showcase on Wednesday, April 11th at the Machine Shop. Doors open at 5:30pm. Show Extempore some love on social media and get $5 off your ticket! Visit to learn more and snag your tickets today!
