线上数据库平台Airtable获5200万美元融资

近日,总部位于美国加利福尼亚州旧金山市的线上数据库服务公司Airtable获5200万美元的B轮融资。领投方为Caffeinated Capital 和CRV,跟投方为Slow Ventures和Freestyle Capital。截至目前,该公司获得的融资总额为6260万美元。

成立于2013年的Airtable是一家线上数据库服务公司,这家初创公司希望将看似普通的电子数据表转变成一个强大的数据库工具,将所有这些东西连接到一个复杂的网络中,在后台创建一个关系数据库,用户可以在一个更简单的问题上进行操作。Airtable的这款关系数据库操作起来非常简单,而且界面用户友好,使用拖拽即可新增表格行列,更新内容,生成报告等等。此外,Airtable不仅支持桌面网页浏览器,还支持移动端浏览器。和Google Sheets一样,Airtable数据库在用户彼此之间分享数据库的时候也可以实时更新。而它最强大之处在于,用户可以在不同表格之间轻松建立联系,比如可以混合、匹配不同类型的数据,在包含文本和数字域的数据库里增加图片域,为企业和普通用户提升了不小的办公效率。

Airtable, a platform that enables anyone to build powerful, custom apps to support their businesses, today announced that the company has raised $52 million in Series B funding, led by existing investors CRV and Caffeinated Capital, with participation from Freestyle Capital and Slow Ventures. Additionally, Airtable announced the launch of Airtable Blocks, a major expansion of the company’s platform. Now for first time ever, people with no coding background can build their own workflows utilizing the latest advances in SMS, AI, and VR, by choosing from a growing palette of mix-and-matchable “Blocks.” With 27 Blocks available at launch, Insomniac Events, The City of Los Angeles, and Carnival Cruise Line are just a few Airtable customers already implementing Blocks in transformational ways.

It’s estimated that the low-code app development market will grow to $27.23 billion in just four years, a 600 percent increase from where it is today. From nonprofits and small businesses to over 30,000 of the world’s leading companies (including Airbnb, Penguin Random House, and Condé Nast Entertainment, to name a few), a broad range of customers currently use and love Airtable, and that number is growing quickly — 400 of the Fortune 1000 are now on the platform, and revenue grew 500% in 2017. With Blocks, Airtable is taking on the low-code market opportunity with a much more widely accessible DIY software creation platform than anything else that exists on the market.

With the SMS Block, for example, a non-profit can quickly and easily select every volunteer in their database who is based in San Francisco, and send them a text message that a meetup is happening the next day; with the Cloud Vision Block, a music festival can create a dynamic lost and found system that automatically tags thousands of pictures of lost items by colors and object type using the latest advances in machine learning for image recognition; or, with the Mapping Block, a film studio can track in real-time where all of their shoots are happening around the globe, from the status of equipment rentals to a production’s status.

Airtable’s new funding will be used to expand the company’s platform offering significantly in the coming months, open new offices across the U.S., and deliver on its vision to democratize software creation.
