What does the future for no-code startups look like?



With the 2020 pandemic, Work From Home, technological problems, furloughs, and redundancies, people are deeply reflecting on their careers and the problems they face with remote teams. 



In the wake of chaos, innovation is born. Hundreds and thousands of founders are revamping their lives by problem solving, finding solutions, and trying to get their mobile applications to market as soon as possible.



Previously, founders were restricted by the developer’s speed, hourly rate, and project queue. 



Enter No-Code Platforms



While many coders entered the field writing Dreamweaver, HTML, and CSS. No-Code has revolutionised the way applications are being built. 



Today, founders are able to build fully formed mobile applications using no-code platforms. And as more founders are born due to COVID-19, then the need for quick citizen builders is rapidly increasing. 



And there are founders reaping the benefits with serious investment.



Major investments for No-Code Platforms and Apps 



Forrester predicts that the no-code development platform market will grow from $3.8 billion in 2017 to $21.2 billion in 2022.



In TechCrunch’s recent article, they discussed some of the latest investments happening for no-code apps.



Hevo, a data pipeline startup, that helps their clients integrate data across 150 different sources such as Salesforce and Oracle, raised $8 million.



Paragon, who graduated from Y Combinator’s Winter 2020 Cohort, raised a $2.5 million seed round. Paragon allows citizen coders to build integrations with a visual work flower. Their goal is to bring low code into product and engineering teams to offer easy to build products without writing code for every single integration. In turn, allowing a streamlined product development process.



Then there was Enduvo, a no-code VR that raised $4 million, and Turbo systems, a no-code engagement platform, raised $3.45 million.

 

Platforms and apps built on no-code and supporting no-code are proving to be more and more relevant. And they are also increasingly in demand.



No-Code Is Not Just For Startups



Since no-code is in demand, many companies are hoping on the no-code bandwagon.

Apple entered the field by rebranding existing company Filemaker, now as Claris.

Amazon launched Honeycode just last month.



Some household name companies such as Zapier, Mailchimp, Shopify, Wix, and Wordpress, have revolutionised no-code in the website space, and there are dozens more companies being created daily to revolutionise another space with no-code
