🇧🇪 Tally: The simplest way to create online forms or surveys. (Founded 2020, Total Funding Amount: bootstrapped)

Create forms for all purposes in seconds, without knowing how to code, and for free.

I’m using Tally forms for my sponsorship deals. Check it out to see how it works.

How it works

Tally is a form builder that works like a document, similar to Notion.

It makes form building easy and gives you powerful features. Such as Airtable integration, Zapier integrations, collecting payments via Stripe, and more.

The Metrics

  • MRR: €1.2k

  • Paid users: 60 

  • Total users: 5.000

The Team

Based in Ghent, Belgium. Co-founded by Marie Martens, and Filip Minev.

Marie has a background in marketing, Filip has a technical background, mainly in web development.

The backstory

At the beginning of 2020, we started another startup (https://hotspot.earth) — Because of COVID-19, we lost a lot of clients and had to pivot.

We used form builders before in our previous jobs and startups. As makers and frequent form users, we were unsatisfied with the existing tools out there.

Current tools and form builders either force you in a specific format or bombard you with countless limits and paywalls.

We wanted a simple, yet powerful form builder that allows you to create any type of form without breaking the bank.

So we set off building Tally—a new type of form builder for makers and no-coders.


🚀 Submit Your Startup

I’m always open to working with all types of founders, no matter their ethnicity, gender, origin, or socio-economic background.

Please fill in this form if you want me to review your startup and product. Feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn as well.

As a rule of thumb, I look at startups that have at least built a minimal viable product. It helps if your product is public and available for everyone.


🏁 You’re all set!

Startups Crushing It! is a premium newsletter about early-stage (before series A) technology startups. I publish the insights each Tuesday or Friday.

You tell me which startups excite you. And if requested, I’ll introduce you to the founders.

I look for strong positive signals using the FPTM model: Founders — Product — Traction — Mission.

I interview the founder(s), toy around with products, crunch numbers, and based on that, I decide which startups to feature.

If you want more, you can dig through the archives for the previous digests.
