Creating forms for a business may not be the most thrilling aspect of working, but someone frankly needs to do it. Founded in Barcelona back in June 2012, startup Typeform has created a platform that allows just about anybody to sign up and start creating snazzy forms to reach your customers and users. They have already picked up clients like Airbnb, Uber, the New York Times, Adobe, and Facebook and, with further financial backing, may be headed for big things.
Although Typeform allows users to create unlimited surveys and offers a host of features at the free level, the company also offers premium plans. They have opted to create a hybrid pricing model, letting users pay $25 monthly, $240 annually, or pay-as-you-go by purchasing credits. At the ‘premium’ level, they offer features such as the removal of Typeform branding, a calculator, the ability to send automated emails to respondents, and more.
Typeform left beta back in February and currently claims 110K users. The company says that they have big plans for 2015, with intentions to launch their team/enterprise version, an API for building typeforms programmatically, and new tools for advanced data analysis.
A couple of week ago, the company announced that they have picked up 1.2 million Euro from London-based Connect Ventures and previous investors Point Nine Capital, which is located in Berlin, and Polish RTA Ventures. Also joining the round was Mariusz Gralewski, the CEO and co-founder of medical-appointment service DocPlanner. Typeform previously picked up 550K Euro from Point Nine and RTA in a seed round last September.
In Europe, one of the main competitors to Typeform is Survio, which is based out of Brno, Czech Republic and claims 100K. One of the key differences is that Survio allows users to create 5 surveys per month for free (as part of their basic package), but charges $12.95 monthly if you require heavier use. You need to pay $34 monthly for unlimited surveys, a feature that Typeform offers for free.
