Flexport – the company is in hyper-growth, taking on a trillion dollar industry that's long been ignored by the tech world. Rubrik – Tackling a huge market, very strong sales and leadership. Founded in 2014, they've raised $290 million to date. Blend – Blend is taking on the mortgage industry, another massive market. They've raised $160M to date. Coda – 3 years in stealth and $60M raised, Coda is taking on Excel ☠️. Invision – recently raised a $100M round led by Battery Ventures, lots of excitement surrounding the launch of Studio.

@benln Thoughts on Affirm?
product @ Italic
@benln @ahuja_karan Affirm is excellent and fills a niche, but coming from a company that heavily used Affirm I still don't see it being a breakout in the coming year. However, I have to say that their customer support is world class, and @mlevchin is the perfect leader for Affirm. I hope that I'm proven wrong and they do become a breakout hit!

@angellist Product Hunt. The community that has been built from the ground up by Ryan is a very strong foundation to build upon and it's stable. The concept is versatile and obviously well-received. The people, who are integral to any company, that are involved are clearly driven, focused and intelligent(and very nice and fun to boot), and there's a lot of room for growth. Imitators of sorts have been springing up, which verifies that it's a business model that's attractive, viable and sustainable, and there are all sorts of opportunities for monetization and partnerships. The products that are being developed, like Ship, are clearly well-conceived and complementary/well-aligned to the core concept. In short, it's a winner, with a lot of influential people taking notice and getting on board, and there are plenty of opportunities available for strong, sustainable growth.

@angellist @shivam_dewan After reading your landing page 3 times i have *no* clue what you are doing. :) You really should work over your text. The images are nice, but the text says practically nothing.

Data Engineer
@angellist @typicalmitul I just used them to book my flight to Europe and I was surprised how easy it was to get tickets. I actually ended up having one leg of my flight cancelled and they automatically set me up with another flight instantly and notified me quickly.

Growth at Hopper
@angellist @typicalmitul @seffa121 our predictions are the most accurate out there but most importantly our notifications game is what sets us apart. 90%+ of our sales come from push notifications.
Share
@angellist @seffa121 SkyScanner and related sites are just aggregators of the data. Whereas Hopper uses ML to notify you if the flight price is expected to decrease/increase in the future - giving you the perfect time to buy the ticket. It's awesome. Someone feel free correct me if I'm wrong!

@angellist @cacarr Yes, that's how they do it, but it's a clinically effective cure for type II diabetes. As an engineer, I find it's easy to simplify things to how it works, but in this case, the effects can change millions of lives, and the solution has been under our noses for a long time.

@angellist @stoweboyd not yet Stowe, however we are gearing up to it, we are just finishing some marketing collateral so we display our proposition clearly, on PH if you launch early you get more feedback, I believe if you launch later you get more feedback and more clients, a week more and we hopefully should be there, and the big launch next month when we unveil our new UI and version control to compete of Attlassian Scroll Versions plug-in

VC @ Vertex Ventures
@angellist Pay close attention to Segment (www.segment.com). Companies are increasingly looking for ways to unify data captured from every touch point and put it to work across all of their tools including analytics, marketing, and warehousing. Segment enables this by allowing developers, data scientists, and marketers to implement Segment once and natively integrate their data sources and destinations. It's a powerful tool for generating unified views of customers, cross-domain analytics, mobile/e-commerce tracking, and more.
