The biggest Y Combinator companies

Y Combinator has released a list of the YC companies with the highest revenue and shared their thinking in a blog post.

First, Y Combinator has an insane track record over almost 20 years. Many era-defining companies.

Another interesting takeaway (as the list doesn’t reveal actual revenue or ranks the companies by revenue) is the mix of sectors the companies are from:

  • 6 sectors are represented, including:
    • B2B software and services (50%)
    • Consumer (22%)
    • Financial technology and services (18%)
    • Healthcare (6%)
    • Industrials (2%)
    • Real estate and construction (2%)

It’s worth noting that the sectors are the same as for VC backed companies in the Nordics: B2B software, consumer, fintech and healthcare.
