2022 has been a year of fast growth, connecting with our users and community, new team members, brand new features, and a lot more.
Let’s start with some numbers, and also look at the impact Baserow has had in 2022.
Today, Baserow has had 26,000 sign ups, a 250% increase in 1 year. Many of our users self host Baserow, therefore the total users is likely close to 100,000. 50% of our new users are from the United States & Canada, followed by Europe and Asia.
This year, our users created 28,000 workspaces with 40,000 databases and 94,000 tables in the hosted version. Activity also continued to grow: more than 11 million rows were created with 88,000 files uploaded, taking 47 Gigabytes of storage on our SaaS offering.
That’s a lot of data! We also plan to add more features to make data management even easier in Baserow.
In 2022 we managed to accomplish a lot, let’s take a look at what we are proud of.
We raised a €5m seed round allowing us to continue expanding the team to build the most scalable, flexible and user-friendly open source no-code toolchain in the world.
We’ve been growing fast. From having 1 employee last December to welcoming 12 new joiners to Baserow in 2022 — we are now a team of 13 people and counting. We hired mostly developers, content writers, a community manager and some sales people.
And we’re still hiring, so check out our open vacancies.
We now have over 26,000 users around the world, and that’s 250% more compared to the end of 2021. We believe we can maintain that growth in 2023.
Thanks for being with us!

As a remote only company without offices, we meet twice a year in person to spend quality time together. In 2022 we met in the Canary Island and Barcelona, and had an amazing time meeting and hanging out with our team members in person.
We want the Baserow community to serve not only as a support center but also as a place where you shape product development, collaborate with the team, and level up your use of Baserow. In the past year, we made some big changes — new onboarding, new categories, new initiatives — and more cool things are yet to come.

Speed and performance improvements.
Looking back, we’ve also learned a lot this year and know that we still have a lot more to prove. We plan to do our best to deliver more than you would anticipate of any no-code database on the market. The roadmap for the first quarters of 2023 is ready, check it out.
In that same similar spirit of ‘deliver more than you expect’, we are planning 2023 to be the year that will start a new big chapter and help our users to build apps faster, cheaper, and with greater security.
Right now we can’t say much of it, but watch this space!
Enjoy the end of 2022, and get ready for something even bigger.
