Up next is Joshua McKenty, Co-Founder and CEO of Delving. Throughout his career Josh saw multitudes of use cases where mission-critical databases were built on spreadsheets, particularly Excel. However, he was always nagged by the lack of workflow tooling surrounding these spreadsheets.

This is where Delving comes in.
