Spreadsheet nerds, this one’s for you

Budgeting for a holiday? Make a spreadsheet. Need a pro/con list? You could try a spreadsheet. Life falling apart? Spreadsheet. As this maker would put it, “we all always end up back in spreadsheets.” Sounds poetic.

We’ve seen slides get a makeover and plenty of products reimagining the traditional document experience. There’s still a lot that can be done with how the good ol’ spreadsheet fundamentally works and integrates with current technology.

Enter Equals. The app takes all of the useful functionality of a spreadsheet and adds built-in connections to any data warehouse, modern versioning, and collaboration. You can use it to connect to any of your databases, like Stripe transactions or Quickbooks data. Every data pull is versioned and restorable so you don’t have to worry about any underlying data changing.

One of the makers behind Equals, Bobby Pinero, who spent over 7 years as Intercom’s CFO, shares that he’s seen “folks using Equals to automate and share forecasts, operating models, cohorts, funnels, sales plans, and burn models.”

Others also seem to be excited about the launch. “I think Equals is the fastest I’ve ever moved from ‘oh that’s interesting’ to ‘take my money,’” Austen Allred (BloomTech’s co-founder) shared on Twitter.

A few other products are tackling spreadsheets in interesting ways. Rows and Grist, to name a few. We did a deeper dive into this a while back. Check it out here.
