Our Story

Oat is a small Canadian company, founded by two productivity enthusiasts who love to plan.

It all started when one of Bhavya Kashyap was unable to find a planner or To Do  app that suited all her needs. Most other planners she had found had no structure for consistent goal setting and management, and when they did, they did not include mood tracking, or habit tracking, or a weekly spread format that worked in the way that was intuitive to her.

As an engineer, she realized there was no reason she couldn't bring her perfect planner to life. After spending time and thought into designing a special planning framework based on both Agile principles and behavioural therapy methods, she set to work on making it a reality, learning all about print design in the process. It was her own little side-project — something special tailored just to her. When she received her planner and showed it to her friends, family, and peers, they were all intrigued.

This is when her sister, PK, decided to take the vision to the next level. She loved the design, and suggested a simple name that represented the growth mindset the framework and planner were designed around: Oat. She learned about the ins and outs of running a business, in order to share these planners with the world.

Almost by accident, these sisters, Bhavya and PK , built Oat from only a seed of an idea. Now, the Oat Agility Planner aids many others in organizing their lives, helping them sow the seeds of their best selves.

The Oat Agility Planner is something we swear by and would not have wanted to share if we didn't believe in the framework it provides. We hope that you find as much joy in using our planners as we have found in creating them.
