Can you tell us the story of your business? How was it created?
Adalo was launched in November 2019 by co-founders David Adkin, Ben Haefele and Jeremy Blalock.
David came from a traditional design background and was always interested in the design process and helping people create new things. He started working with Ben at another SaaS startup in St. Louis and they started collaborating on a book about design and how to break down the design process. This led to them talking about creating some kind of product to help people bring their ideas to life.
During this time UX design tools were progressing really quickly and kept getting more and more realistic. To the point that when trying to learn to code it just felt like design tools would evolve faster than you could learn to code. And hence the idea for Adalo was born.
How would you define your corporate culture? What are your values?
Adalo has five corporate values. Serious decisions are always made in the context of the principles you hold. If purpose is the north star of an organization, then principles are the map, showing which path to take in order to get where you want to go.
We empower & engage with our community of makers.
We are committed to doing what’s right for our makers. We value their ideas, their feedback, their experiences, and their work. We believe every person should have the opportunity to make powerful apps, no matter their technical expertise & in our community we will do what we can to provide a platform that turns ideas into reality.
We tell the truth & act with integrity.
We trust each other & believe each of us is doing the best we can to fulfill Adalo’s purpose of empowering makers. Because of that trust, we are transparent & honest about our company. We give honest feedback to our co-workers & colleagues. We are candid, but not harsh. We know what is expected of us & we follow through on our words with actions.
We encourage & celebrate our differences.
We are better together & each difference we bring to the company helps to shape Adalo into something greater than can be achieved alone. Our company is made better when we’re each able to bring our full selves to work each day. We not only invite differences, we welcome them.
We never stop learning
We are continually learning and striving to be better than we were yesterday in all aspects of our lives. We recognize that there is always an opportunity for growth — and we put in the work required to grow & learn. Through continued learning we never stop improving our product, our processes, and ourselves.
We always solve the problem.
We default to action & recognize that it is better to do something than it is to wait or do nothing. Because we own our work, we are responsible for the outcome & its impact. We don’t dwell on problems for too long, and instead work towards solutions — always.

Can you tell us more about the product ?
Adalo is an app-building software that supports building websites and applications without needing to learn how to code.
Adalo’s purpose is to empower makers to bring their ideas to life.
The skill of coding prevents billions of people from bringing their ideas to life. (In fact only 0.3% of people can code today.) We believe this needs to change. We believe anyone should be able to create an app regardless of their technical expertise. Because a world where only 1% of people can solve problems is a world missing 99% of its potential.
We believe anyone one should be able to make an app, regardless of technical skill. Adalo is a platform that makes creating apps as easy as putting together a slide deck.
Creating web and mobile apps traditionally required learning how to code, finding a technical cofounder, or raising a lot of capital. For some, this means spending lots of precious time and money before they can get their idea off the ground. For others, this cost is simply too high and they walk away from their dream.
With Adalo, anyone can turn their idea into a real app — without having to hire expensive developers.
