Why Build countbubble? In 157 words

Updated: Nov 9

My first job in my early 20s was at a small but mighty nonprofit in the Bronx. I helped implement a new data management system. We struggled with doubt and guilt during the process. Our people are more than just numbers! In the end, we went from paper files to a web application that let us collect and report all of our service data. The change was hard, but it propelled us forward.

Years later, I found myself wading through dozens of spreadsheets to manage data for a foundation. It was time consuming, frustrating, and error prone. It took too long to get answers to simple questions, and missing data was common. I looked for a better solution, but everything was too expensive or too complex.

countbubble sprouted from these experiences. We built countbubble to make data management tools accessible to smaller nonprofits that don’t have the resources for more expensive solutions. We're here to help nonprofits thrive.

Reporting your impact is hard when you’re juggling spreadsheets. countbubble makes it easy so you can focus on your mission.

Are you struggling to manage your service delivery data? Is reporting too time consuming?

countbubble is data management software simplified. Our software helps small nonprofits collect data and report their impact.
