ClearTips recently caught up with YY Combinator graduate Uiflo, a startup building a no-code enterprise app creation service.
If you are thinking Wait, many companies don’t already do this?, The answer is yes. But the work that QuickBase, SmartSheet and others are doing is not very similar, at least from a startup perspective.
A Bay Area-based concern, which has been alive for less than a year, Uiflo has created an app creation tool that works with the backend of a large company currently operating, and its development team is collaboratively Helps to create an app from. As explained in a public posting, customer developers can import Fimma files, while their engineers can use existing UI libraries, and product managers can quickly get through the logic of an app.
Uiflo says the service is “the difference between unity and figure”.
Here’s how the company has its own user interface according to a screenshot, the company provided to ClearTips after an interview:
Per Y Convenor, the company has closed a pre-seed round of more than $ 500,000. The company told ClearTips that it has been talking to investors recently – as essentially every Y Combinator-backed startup does after its public unveiling – but it appears to be raising more capital until it Does not fully service its product; Once GTM speeds become more widely available, the company can accelerate its hiring efforts.
The startup told ClearTips that it signed up about 1,200 after its product hunt launch. It is vetoing the group and offering something as pilot customers. Those customers currently pay the company, so it has revenue, although the startup is more product-focused than focused around growing its short-term revenue.
UFlow thinks its target customers are companies with 250 or more workers, the scale at which the company starts thinking about its UI elements. However, Uiflow is talking to companies with 100 to 1,000 customers, it said.
A five-man team is building a service in a market that is more than active at the moment. As ClearTips has discovered, private-market investors are increasingly moving into the no-code space, especially after the COVID-19 epidemic at the pace with which companies have turned to digital solutions, large and small. No-code and low-code services became more in demand as the boom in digital transformation efforts met the general lack of available marketplace developer talent.
ClearTips has covered the no-code space extensively in recent quarters, given the increasing market demand for its products and the increasing demand for shares in startups pursuing the model. All that is said is that there is a fair chance, which we will hear soon from UiFlow. Let us see how long it takes.
Meanwhile, here is a picture of the Uflow team. In 2021-style, this is a zoom shot:
