A Message From Loops
Loops is a fast, simple and beautiful email sending platform for startups.
It shouldn't be painful to write an email.
It shouldn't be stressful to set up automations (loops) to help convert and engage your users.
Email should be simple, no matter the scale of your business.
We're bringing back simple, so you can stop messing around with Mailchimp and get back to running your startup.

I’m excited thrilled to announce that Heyday has raised a $6.5M Seed led by Kevin Thau at Spark Capital. My co-founder, Sam DeBrule, shared our pitch deck on Twitter earlier this week. Here’s my workspace while I was raising our round:
Inside Samiur’s Workspace
Macbook Pro 16” 64GB Ram (2019)
Amazon Basics Laptop Stand (discontinued)
Brancaster Genuine Leather Conference Chair (bought from Craigslist fire sale)
Springbank 12 Year (for after 8 calls in a row)
Dominion + Dominion Prosperity (used as Camera stand)
What do you look forward to most each day? Least?
Most: Talking through crazy new ideas of how we can automate more things for people
Least: Doing the million little mundane things that’s necessary to run a business
How do you spark creativity?
Going for long walks, particularly with Sam (my cofounder). Let the conversation flow, instead of having an agenda.
What excites you most about Heyday?
I hate doing mundane things, and I hate the feeling of “forgetting something”. Heyday will make that better for me and for millions of others! LFG!
