ag-Grid Company Profile
Our story is proof that necessity is the mother of invention. During his time working in London-based financial institutions, Niall Crosby – founder and CEO – struggled to find any datagrid component that could deliver the performance required in tandem with a complete feature list. This struggle ultimately led Niall to pulling out the keyboard one Christmas holiday period and starting ag-Grid as a side project. This was then released as open source and quickly developed a following.
Niall found himself having to devote considerable time and effort to maintaining ag-Grid, even fielding feature requests from users. It became apparent that this thing had legs – and the idea of ag-Grid Enterprise took seed in Niall’s mind. Fast forward to March 2016 and the first commercial version was launched.
Today, ag-Grid is a self-funded, bootstrapped company with over 500 customers in 49 countries. Our product has resonated in the market – as our users face the same challenges Niall did – and this has been central to our rapid growth. And we’re not stopping here: we are furiously working on the next great features to continue our mission.
