NocoDB, a San Francisco, CA-based open-source, no-code platform that turns any database into a smart spreadsheet, raised $10.5 million in seed funding to make building apps on top of live production data as easy as using a Spreadsheet.
The round was led by Decibel and OSS Capital, with participation from Uncorrelated Ventures and Together.Fund.
Other prominent investors include early Google investor Ram Shriram, WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg, AngelList co-founder Naval Ravikant, Cloudera co-founder Jeff Hammerbacher, CockroachDB co-founder Spencer Kimball, Red Hat co-founder Bob Young, YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley, BrightRoll founder Tod Sacerdoti, Talend co-founder Bertrand Diard, and Freshworks co-founder Girish Mathrubootham.
“Live production data stores, like MySQL or Snowflake, are intimidating for business users, or even to developers who aren’t used to working with the backend tech stack. But they need access to this data in order to build useful applications quickly,” said Naveen Rudrappa, CEO and Founder at NocoDB. “NocoDB makes it possible to connect any organizational data source to the universally well-understood spreadsheet interface, allowing users with zero coding experience to build workflows and automation that work in concert with real business data.”
NocoDB supports data stores on MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server, SQLite, Amazon Aurora, MariaDB, Snowflake, and Oracle DB. Its app store allows users to build business workflows with Slack, Microsoft Teams, Discord, Twilio, WhatsApp, email, and third-party APIs and connectors such as Zapier and Integromat.
