Apptoto Founder Relocates Tech Startup to Bend, Now Hiring Engineers and a Designer

Founder of Apptoto Frank Cort long thought that he’d move back to Bend. The 1995 Mountain View High School grad headed off to Oregon State for college and then finished his Masters in Computer Science at Stanford.

Frank dove into the Bay Area’s tech community, working as a software engineer for Xobni and then Yahoo, and founding his own startups on the side. The one that took off – Apptoto – he’s recently brought back to Bend. “Bend is all about lifestyle, which we wanted, but then there’s lots of people to talk to about startups, lots of people willing to help and offer advice,” Frank says. “It’s been really good.”

A fateful convo

Apptoto is an automated appointment reminder app. Frank developed the first iteration of his product after talking with the guy who cuts his hair about the money he lost every time someone missed an appointment. “He booked his appointments months out, but if he didn’t call people to remind them the day before, they’d often forget,” Frank says.
