About Us

Founded in 2008, Projecturf’s mission is to build the best project management app on the market by creatively merging form and function. People use Projecturf to manage projects, people, and tasks; create and assign tasks, share files, collaborate with others, track time and budgets, calendar events, manage tickets, and get things done.

Management Team

Projecturf was founded in 2008 by 3 partners. It was created to fulfill a need of managing our own work and projects. We didn’t raise money or get funded by a VC. We started Projecturf with our own money and continue to run it each day with the same passion and excitement we had years ago when we began.
