Youreka, a no-code startup that lets companies build their own mobile assistants, recently raised $8 million in a Series A funding round backed by Salesforce. 
There’s been a boom in the so-called low-code/no-code market — a trend towards tools that make it easier for even non-programmers to quickly and easily make simple apps and automate common tasks. 
A host of major players have invested in this sector, including Microsoft with its Power Platform product. Last year, Google acquired Seattle-based no code company AppSheet as it redoubled its own efforts in the space. Other hot startups in this sector include the likes of Airtable, Unqork, and Webflow
Insider previously reported that the low/no code market is set to be worth $52 billion in 2024 — a huge increase from $6 billion in 2018 — according to a recent report from equity research firm RBC, citing P&S Intelligence. 
Using Youreka’s digital “Cobots”, companies can build mobile assistant apps with the aiming of enabling frontline staff to do their jobs more safely and efficiently.
The startup first started working in healthcare in 2017, helping mobile nurses assess, diagnose, and treat high-risk individuals with only a tablet or smartphone.
Youreka’s tech is now used in a range of industries to design internal procedure guides, produce forms, and capture photos and videos. In manufacturing, field technicians use Youreka’s tools to service advanced machinery. Meanwhile, in the energy sector, firms like Shell use it to oversee the safety their power infrastructure. 
Alongside participating backer Salesforce, the Series A round was led by Boulder Ventures and Grotech Ventures.
