Glide is leveling up with a $20M
Series A led by Benchmark
There's an experience of power, beauty, and magic at the heart of software development. That's why programmers fall in love with it. Unfortunately, that experience is wrapped in an enigma.
In late 2018, Jason, Mark, Antonio, and I looked into previous efforts to unwrap the enigma and make software development accessible to everyone, but none grabbed us. We wanted something that would captivate us—or anyone—with the same sense of power, beauty, and magic.
In 2019, we began building Glide. For power, we chose the most popular programming tool of all time: spreadsheets. For beauty, we added an easy-to-use design layer that transforms spreadsheet data into beautiful, interactive apps. For magic, we used real magic 😉
In 2020, the world changed and Glide exploded. We saw hundreds of thousands of people around the world, without coding skills, build apps for their businesses, communities, families, and sometimes just for fun.
Last year, Glide went to work. From small businesses managing inventory, to Fortune 500 companies coordinating distribution, to the PGA running international golf tournaments, we watched Glide pair perfectly with existing spreadsheets inside companies, giving employees in HR, Sales, and Operations unprecedented software superpowers.
Today we're leveling up with Airtable & Excel support, enhancements to Glide Pages, new team plans to unleash the genius of any organization, and Benchmark as our partner.
Our mission is to put the power, beauty, and magic of software development into the hands of a billion new creators. We can't wait to see what you build!

Today, we're releasing Airtable and Excel support, new layouts & components for Glide Pages, a more browseable template store, and all new team plans to unleash the genius of any organization.Jump into Glide →
We started with Google Sheets, but Glide now supports Airtable and Excel. You can also use Glide Tables, our built-in data source, for greater scale and speed.
We're adding multi-column layouts, a powerful Kanban board, and will soon add charts, and the Data Grid that powers Glide itself as a component for your Pages.
Our completely redesigned Template Store has over 400 templates to help you discover exciting new uses for Glide, and start your next project even faster.
New Pro and Business plans include unlimited Apps & Pages. An all-new Starter plan gets you going for just $25 monthly. As always, you can create your first apps for free.
We're not sitting still. This year, we'll focus on making Glide even easier to use, we'll add more design options and powerful new components, and we'll support even more data sources. We're also making it easier to create & share templates.
We're making Glide even simpler, with better onboarding and refinements to core features of the data editor and layout builder.
New themes, expanded color options, refinements to existing components, and powerful new components will make your Apps & Pages better than ever.
Data is what your app's about, and it's everywhere. We plan to add many more data sources beyond Sheets, Excel, and Airtable.
Companies of every size & shape are moving from spreadsheet or paper-based workflows to modern, connected apps for work.See our customer stories →
