New versions coming soon

The funds will be used to launch its paid premium and enterprise versions in Q3 2022 and build the world’s first open-source, all-in-one, no-code toolchain.

The premium paid version will provide users with additional features including row colouring, row comments, and additional data export formats. Meanwhile, the enterprise version will offer features such as a robust user-management, role-based access control and access to the enterprise team support.

Bram Wiepjes, Co-Founder and CEO of Baserow said, ”This successful seed round will inject additional capital to expand our developer team to further develop the application builder and workflow automation modules.”

Olivier Maes, Co-Founder and CRO of Baserow added, “With Baserow, customers get the best of both worlds: user-friendly no-code tools with the openness and flexibility of the open source model. This unique proposition ensures businesses can avoid the general vendor lock-in models available in the marketplace.”

“We are delighted to invest in Baserow as we are firm believers of the team’s vision to build a full no-code toolchain on the basis of a scalable database. No-code adoption in the enterprise is really still in its infancy with predominantly point solutions and no real winners yet,” said Frank Lansink, Partner at Inkef.

“Baserow is the tool that modern knowledge workers need. We believe that Baserow will be very popular across both the public and private sectors. Privacy is more important than ever. Baserow offers unparalleled privacy without compromising on ease of use and flexibility,” said Arek Wylegalski, Partner at firstminute capital.

Demand for no-code tools

Since the pandemic, the low-code and no-code tools sectors have seen a growth due to their effectiveness in addressing complex business challenges. Reportedly, these tools digitise workflows, automate processes and improve business efficiencies. It is estimated that by 2025, nearly 70% of new applications developed by organisations will use low code or no-code technologies.

Baserow was founded by Bram Weipjes and Olivier Maes in 2020 as it realised that businesses in the private and public sector space want to leverage no-code tools. With these tools, businesses want to create applications, manage data and automate processes for greater productivity, improve citizen services, drive faster time to market metrics and lower costs.

Baserow is an open-source platform offering customers the choice of SaaS or self-hosting solutions, freeing users from vendor lock-in. It lets users customise the platform with personalised plug-ins and gives customers complete freedom to own and manage the applications they develop. As an API-first platform, it integrates seamlessly with any tool needed to build a no-code stack.

The platform enables non-technical teams to capture and organise data to trigger intelligent business insights and automate processes. Since its debut, Baserow has garnered over 20,000 sign-ups and boasts more than 10,000 active users.
