Announcing Tiller’s 2021 Spreadsheet Builders’ Challenge

sbc updated

We are excited to announce the 2021 Tiller Spreadsheet Builders’ Challenge!

The challenge invites you to enter to win a $1,000 grant to build an impactful personal finance solution based in Google Sheets and powered by Tiller.

This challenge aims to inspire the creation of new spreadsheet-based solutions that empower people with greater understanding, confidence, and control of their financial lives.

Your financial life in a spreadsheet, automatically updated each day

Tiller connects 21,000 banks to your spreadsheets and automatically updates them with your spending, balances, and net worth each day. Track everything in one place with flexible templates and no ads.

The challenge also showcases the creativity and skills of spreadsheet enthusiasts across the United States.

About the Challenge

If you remember our 2019 Builders Challenge, this one will be a bit different. Rather than builders posting and judges comparing completed submissions, this time interested builders will apply for a grant.

Up to three grants will be awarded by Tiller based on the strength of the builder’s concept, the value of the concept to the community, and the technical feasibility.

Grant winners will meet periodically with a developer on our team to improve, refine and realize their concepts.

We hope to share some of the winning concepts via the Tiller Community Solutions Add-on and website gallery.

Why Spreadsheets?

Spreadsheets are one of the most powerful, accessible, and flexible tools for solving problems. And the #1 most stressful problem for most people is money and finances.

Each day, millions of people ask themselves:

Your financial life in a spreadsheet, automatically updated each day

Tiller connects 21,000 banks to your spreadsheets and automatically updates them with your spending, balances, and net worth each day. Track everything in one place with flexible templates and no ads.

All of the questions above can be answered in a spreadsheet. Indeed, spreadsheets have unique advantages for organizing, tracking, and understanding money.

However, a blank spreadsheet is a daunting place to begin. The 2021 Builders Challenge aims to demonstrate how community-built templates can help people get started.
