Apify’s mission is to make the web more programmable. Why? Because we believe that humans have better things to do than fill information into internet forms, compile Excel sheets of copy-pasted data or watch thousands of videos to determine whether they include a specific brand logo. Those are jobs for a machine. And just as in the real world we have tools that make our lives easier, we should have tools to make our lives easier on the web.

Web automation can be anything. We robotize unsubscribe flows to save people money and we collect billions of rows of data from all over the world for sciencemarket research or finding lost children. Fortune 500 companies and small startups alike need this power to make great business decisions.
