How Skylight Was Born
Skylight started with our original product, Skylight Frame, with the goal of connecting families who were far away. After many years and hundreds of thousands of Skylight Frames sold, we decided to explore on our missing to make family life easier and more connected. That's when we created Skylight Calendar.
We hope you will enjoy your Skylight products!
Our First Product: Skylight Frame
Our team first came together as students at Harvard Business School, where we realized we had the same problem: we were all living far away from our families and from where we grew up - some of us across the country, and some on a different continent altogether! We were eager to find a device that made it effortless to share special photos with our loved ones across the world ... and not just to their phones, but into a beautiful physical display that would live in their home.
We were surprised to find that the product we wanted didn't exist, so we decided to create it. And thus Skylight was born, designed from the start to connect the digital and non-digital worlds and to bring together families that might be many miles apart.
Our first product was Skylight Frame, a touchscreen photo frame that you can update by email from anywhere.
Our Latest Product: Skylight Calendar
Our customers love Skylight Frame, but we wanted to give them more - the ability to simplify their lives so they can spend more time with their loved ones.
We believe Skylight Calendar will help families stay organized and in-the-know about each other's events. We hope you love this product as much as we do!
Our Moment of Fame on Kickstarter
Skylight came to life after a successful Kickstarter campaign that helped us connect with supporters and raise the funding needed to start production. We had the honor of being named a "Kickstarter Staff Pick", and the thrill of being able to raise $55K, almost twice the amount of our funding goal!
We are forever thankful for the support and words of encouragement we received during our campaign, and we continue to work hard to fulfill the mission of bringing connecting families around the world.
