Stackby 2020: A Year in Review

Too much happened in 2020 for the world and for Stackby

2020 has been truly unprecedented in the history of humanity. WTF and WFH both happened in the same year.

You gotta forget 2020, but you can’t.

A lot many things didn’t go as planned for many, there were still some incredible moments we would love to share -

1. Awarded as a part of Tech 30 in India by YourStory

India has close to 40,000 startups as of December 2020. With a rising middle class, growing economy, increasing infrastructure - the rise of startups is inevitable.

Stackby is awarded by YourStory, as one of the most promising tech startups in India as part of Tech30 from over 3000 applications. We are the only company from our state to be awarded for being a part of it in the last 10 years.

2. Hit 40+ no code API integrations  

We are moving towards an API first world. Public APIs have moved from 300 in 2015, to now over 25000 in 2020. More and more services are being utilized via APIs, and let alone only developers know how to use it.

With column level API connectors, you can access over 80+ pre-built API functions from 40+ popular services and bring data to your tables automatically. Not only that, you can refresh your cells or automatically schedule the API column, to bring the latest data automatically while you can sit back and relax. It’s a boon to all the marketers and entrepreneurs alike.

Some of the popular use-cases have been turned into videos:
