At ag-Grid, our mission is simple: Build the best datagrid in the world.
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. A little over one year after the project started the first commercial version was launched.
Today, ag-Grid is a self-funded, bootstrapped company with thousands of customers globally. 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 working on the next great features to continue our mission.
We believe that a datagrid should be agnostic to the framework that developers choose. This allows flexibility and future-proofs your development. This is also where the 'ag' in ag-Grid comes from.
Our experience is in building Enterprise applications: we know that the datagrid is at the core of an Enterprise application, and needs to deliver performance and a rich feature set.
We give away what others charge for. ag-Grid Community provides all of the features of our competition. We only charge when we go above and beyond, with features that other grids don’t provide.
