Hey everyone! By the end of this year everything will be AI, I'm going to make sure you're in the loop through this crazy worldwide transition.

It's raining while I write this right now, and the wind chimes are going nuts! I'm looking forward to not needing to water the lawn :)

Ok, enough about the weather, I found a super interesting list today and you're going to love it.

Let's do this.

p.s. Are you looking to fundraise for your early stage AI startup? Do you have users already? I am constantly on the look out on behalf of the $90mil fund I scout for (they have invested $1mil in early stage startups I sent them over the past 12 months). Reach out if you think you are a good fit.

๐ŸŒŸ Mattโ€™s AI Highlights

Here is every AI startup in Y Combinator's current batch:

Y Combinator is a startup accelerator and venture capital firm based in Silicon Valley, California. It was founded in 2005 and has since become one of the most well-known and successful startup incubators in the world. Y Combinator provides funding, mentorship, and resources to early-stage startups in exchange for equity.

Since its inception, Y Combinator has helped launch over 2,000 companies, including well-known names such as Airbnb, Dropbox, Stripe, and Reddit. Many of these companies have gone on to achieve massive success and have become household names in the technology industry.

Every 6 months 10,000 companies apply to participate in Y Combinator and only 1.5% to 2% are accepted (For comparison, Harvard's acceptance rate is 3.2%).

I was in the Summer 2012 batch of Y Combinator alongside Instacart, Zapier, and Coinbase (which at the time consisted of just one employee, CEO Brian Armstrong). It is a fast paced and highly valuable experience.

I put together a list the AI companies in the current Y Combinator batch including their names, descriptions, and website URLs so that you could easily check them out.
