Airtable is a powerful database with a user-friendly interface. Our value proposition is in how our product harnesses the power of creating software for our users without requiring them to know how to write code. 

Currently, all kinds of people use Airtable: marketers, filmmakers, tech startups, wedding planners, and cattle ranchers, to name just a few. We call them creators. While we’ve made it an order of magnitude easier for creators to build workflows and collaborate seamlessly, we know that it can be daunting to get started in a tool as powerful as ours.

It is a key part of our overall growth and retention strategy.
