First, some housekeeping: Thanks to us New parent company, TechCrunch is off tomorrow, so think of this as the last chapter of The Exchange this week. (The newsletter will be published on Saturday as usual.) Also, Alex will be off next week. Anna is covering next week’s newsletter, and there could be one or two rows in the deck.
But before slowing down for a few days, let’s chat about the theme details about the latest Y Combinator Demo Day.
If you catch the last few Equity episode, Some of this is familiar, but the rest of the year will cover startups, so I wanted to flag it for later reference.
Exchange explores startups, markets and money.
Below is a summary of Y Combinator startup trends and how they matched our expectations.
With a group of nearly 400 startups, you may find it difficult to find a category that you find overrated, but we managed it.
First, I was surprised at the sheer number of cohort startups pursuing software models that incorporate no-code and low-code technology. Sure, I was expecting some, but it wasn’t close to the 20 I edited this morning.
YC Batch startups are building no-code and low-code tools to help developers build faster internal workflows (Tantle), Build a branded real estate portal (Noroko), Synchronize data between other no-code tools (Whalesync), Automate HR (Zazos), more.Also, for the mix Bright Reps, baud, alchemy, Hyperseed, Yen phase, HitPay, Wally, Muse, Abstra, Lago, Inai When Breadcrumbs.io..
At least 18 companies in the group name dropped no chords and low chords on the pitch. They enter a variety of industries, from finance and real estate to sales and human resources development. In short, no-code and low-code tools feel like every sector. The startup world seems to have decided that helping non-developers build their own tools, workflows, and apps tends to stay here.
