About

Bridge was founded by David Head to help venture-backed startups succeed using no-code tools: from scaling on them to migrating away from them.

While there's currently a great enthusiasm for the no-code tool, the practicalities of using them has not been as much a part of the discussion as it should be. There also are little-to-no strategic and tactical resources available for using them in the context of a venture-backed startup.

As a no-code tool user since 2013, David has experienced both their advantages and limitations of many times over. Most notably at Sixty, the Y Combinator-backed freelance marketplace startup he co-founded, as well as Lambda School, where he was a Data Engineer.
