Airtable vs Notion in our news:

2021. Notion acquires India’s Automate.io in push to accelerate product expansion



Notion has acquired Automate.io, an Indian startup that builds connectivity and integrations with over 200 services, as the workplace productivity startup looks to accelerate its product expansion to become more compelling for tens of millions of individuals and businesses that are increasingly moving to digital collaborative tools. Automate will help Notion understand the know-how of — and leverage — the 200 integrations the Indian startup has developed to give users and enterprises alike the ability to bring their workflows into Notion.


2020. Airtable raises $185M and launches new low-code and automation features



The spreadsheet-centric database and no-code platform Airtable has raised a $185 million Series D. In addition, the company is also launching new low-code features, as well new automation (think IFTTT for Airtable) and data management. Previously, Airtable users could use pre-built blocks to add maps, Gantt charts and other features to their tables. But while being a no-code service surely helped Airtable’s users get started, there’s always an inevitable point where the pre-built functionality just isn’t enough and users need more custom tools (Liu calls this an escape valve). So with Airtable Apps, more sophisticated users can now build additional functionality in JavaScript — and if they choose to do so, they can then share those new capabilities with other users in the new Airtable Marketplace.


2020. Online workspace startup Notion raises $50M



Online workspace startup Notion has raised $50 million in new funding on a $2 billion valuation. Founded in 2016, Notion offers an all-in-one workspace that includes support for notes, tasks, wikis and databases. Pitched as blending everyday work apps into one, the service is designed for task and project management. In the middle of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Notion’s support for remote workers helped seal the round. The company is said to have seen record levels of new customer sign-ups in the last few weeks as much of the world is forced to work from home.Remote working has exploded in 2020 alongside COVID-19. Companies across the board that provide remote working tools have seen large boost in numbers.
