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.
