Burbio was born from an inspiration - build a digital home where anyone can find their town’s school, community, sports and kids calendars and use it to easily organize their lives by adding events to their calendar in one easy click.
After searching for a tool to manage school calendars, sports teams, enrichment activities, lessons and volunteer groups for us and our four children, and never finding it, we just decided to just build it ourselves.
With support from friends, local organizations and businesses - and hours working with developers - Julie designed Burbio 1.0, which made its debut in our hometown of Pelham, NY, in the Fall of 2013. Dennis joined full time in the Spring of 2014 and what you see today is Burbio 2.0, which is expanding far beyond Pelham to towns all over.
Burbio is a community resource designed to solve the problems that residents have keeping up to date with all of their family member's local activities, organizers have managing groups, and local non-profits, governments, and businesses have telling people about their events.
Burbio is free to use, and its easy group calendar creation feature is great for PTAs, scout groups, sports teams, non-profits, businesses, religion classes, government calendars and even car pools.
Your personal Burbio calendar, which is kept private, easily pulls in events (no hand entering!) from group calendars on Burbio, syncs to Apple and Google calendars, and features updates and recommendations for local activities. It is a great resource to start your day.
As Burbio expands, one of the things we enjoy most is meeting the parent volunteers, non-profit leaders, educators, local business owners, and public officials from other communities and hearing and sharing stories about what they do and talking about how Burbio might help.
We hope that Burbio can be a great resource for them, and for you, and we are working hard to make Burbio better every day.
