And we’re back! Yes, today was the second day of pitches from Y combinator, an American startup accelerator with a global reach that holds demo days twice a year. This year’s Summer 2022 cohort gave us hundreds of batch companies to look at. For the founders involved, this is a critical day; for investors it’s a buffet; for us in the media, it’s a chance to look at many companies, each hoping to be the next hit from the well-known startup backer.
TechCrunch has coverage on individual areas of startup work that have been featured, including geographic breakdowns, diving into AI startups and a look at the future of fintech. But here we profile a few startups from the batch that caught our eye.
As always, this list is for fun, in no particular order—just startups that stood out to TechCrunch reporters for one reason or another. You can find all our coverage here and our favorites from day one here. There is a complete list of all the startups in the package provided by YC here as well.
