Neptyne launched on Y Combinator’s "Launch YC" recently.

Launch YC: Neptyne - The spreadsheet reimagined for the AI era

Neptyne is a spreadsheet using a powerful Python (Jupyter notebook) computation engine. The python-based spreadsheet is built from the ground-up for both human and AI collaboration, to go from raw data to useful insights and visualizations at lightning speed.

"The programmable spreadsheet."

Founded by Douwe Osinga & Jack Amadeo. Douwe: founder of 4 companies, ex-Google. Jack: prev. Sidewalk Labs, Compass, Bloomberg. The team is on a mission to create the world's most productive data platform and make spreadsheets programmable by leveraging the power of Python & AI.


Neptyne provides a new approach to working with data that combines the ease of use of spreadsheets with the power of data science tools such as Pandas and notebooks. By leveraging AI, Neptyne makes this unified approach accessible to everyone, eliminating the limitations of spreadsheets and reducing the complexity of using advanced data tools.

You can ask the AI for simple things, like:

🔹 ‘add a profit column’

🔹 ‘create a map showing where the customers are’.

It truly excels at complex tasks, such as:

🌟 Modifying existing code in a complicated revenue calculator, adding a new variable, or changing the weighting of existing variables.

🌟 Updating a powerful pandas-based pivot table that summarizes data by product and region; include or exclude specific products, or alter the grouping criteria to be by product category rather than individual products.

The calculations are updated in real-time, allowing you to quickly explore different options and gain new insights from the data.

"It's like having a co-worker next to you who knows Python well and can help you write new code, change existing code or even explain what’s going on."

After launching a version on Hacker News, without the AI-based features, thousands tried the product. From that audience, an enthusiastic group of power users emerged. They're using Neptyne to build 👇
