Startups are one of the most popular areas of business in recent years, as the tech boom and increased investments in various industries have allowed early hopefuls the opportunity to build their dream companies. Y Combinator is an event that hosts new startups and announces major startup news, and is often the place where many new companies hope to launch their new platforms. These are all of the businesses that made the big announcement during the 2018 Y Combinator event.
- Of the wide array of startups that launched at Y combinator’s Demo Day 2 in S18, the fewest number fell into the categories of government, industrial and agriculturally relevant startups.
- Educational and automotive offerings were also sparse, as were startups dealing with blockchain.
- One offering, “Mental Happy” aims to brighten worker’s days with its “cheerbox” which carries positive messages and wellness and food products.
“As we noted yesterday, B2B software and services was the biggest vertical with 30 percent of the 132 startups falling into that slice of the categorical pie. Healthcare-related startups were close behind with 28 percent.”
