In the year 2009, Christian Reber used a social networking site XING (a European site where professionals can build a small network to develop their career) where he proposed people to be his business partners and form a new to-do app. A person named Frank Thelen responded to him and this is how Wunderlist App came into existence. On June 1, 2015, when the company had over 13 million users, it was acquired my Microsoft, for between US $100million and US$200million. As of March 2017, it was announced by Microsoft that the wunderlist app will be replaced by an app called to-do. It was a new platform which was developed by Wunderlist team although; it had the similar feature with that of wunderlist. However, till date wunderlist has not yet been replaced by to-do.
Frank Thelen and some other investors contributed 1,00,000 Euro in 6Wunderkinder in its initial stage. In the year 2010, a firm named High- Tech Grunderfonds invested approximately US$660,000 in the wunderlist company. An undisclosed amount was also invested in the company by T-Venture. In the year 2011, during its first round of venture capital financing, an international technology investment firm named Atomico invested about $4.2million in this startup. However, in the year 2012, High-Tech Grunderfonds sold its shares in 6Wunderkinder to Earlybird venture Capital. In its second round of venture capital financing in November 2013, the company raised $19Million.
