If you had doubts about no-code’s future, perhaps $100 million could persuade you?
Yesterday, Bubble announced its Series A, following a 2019 seed round, preceded by 7 years of bootstrapping. Founder Emmanuel Straschnov told TechCrunch how they’ve been using the seed money.
“In our business, it’s a features game. [Our users] are not technical, but they have high standards.”
We’ve been introduced to some of those new features on Product Hunt; Bubble’s integrations for Zapier, Airtable, and Figma all launched in the last year. Like Zapier, Bubble also wants to invest in education through its own content and university partnerships.

“I don’t look at all the no-code players as competition… the true competition we have is code.”
In that spirit, here are five recent launches from startups on a similar mission — to democratize software development (or burst the tech bubble).
Adalo - Build apps for every platform
Glide 2.0 - Create web apps from Google Sheets (now without Google sheets, too)
Softr 2.0 - Build web apps & portals from Airtable
Noloco - Build custom web apps quickly
Dorik 2.0 - Build websites with unlimited pages without code
