Twice a year Y Combinator hosts a Demo Day where all of the companies that have just finished the YC program pitch their business to investors and alumni. Recently, Demo Day has expanded to two separate stages across three days to account for the 170+ companies presenting.
Golden has opened a new query result to make it easy to research and understand the 160+ companies that are launching at Y Combinator’s Summer 2019 (YC S19) Demo Day. Each company has a canonical page explaining what they are working on. Most information was compiled from public signals prior to demo day using the Golden’s Research Engine. [Note: off-the-record companies have been excluded even if there is public signal that they are in the batch]. As usual if we missed anything or corrections need to made, please do so or let us know.
Digging into trends
We dug into the YC S19 companies to identify a few trends that we found interesting.
