Y Combinator reveals its Top 100 startups
Yesterday Michael Seibel, Y Combinator CEO and guest on the illustrious Product Hunt Radio podcast, revealed the top 100 YC companies by valuation.

“Most people know that Dropbox and Airbnb are YC companies, but they might be surprised by many of the other companies on the list.”

More than 28K jobs and $100B in enterprise value was created from these 100 companies. Impressive. Top of the list:

1. Airbnb. The $30B traveling platform continues to expand globally and introduce new features like Experiences.

2. Stripe. Earlier this year the company raised another $245M and introduced Issuing to make credit card issuing easy.

3. Cruise. Acquired by GM in 2016, the autonomous vehicle company may have sold too soon, considering their most recent valuation puts it at $14B.

YC's Top 100
TL;DR: The 6th episode of Product Hunt Radio just dropped. Listen here.

In this episode of Product Hunt Radio, we're in SF talking to two young founders: Tiffany Zhong, founder of Zebra Intelligence, a startup helping brands and old people like us better understand Gen Z, and Drake Rehfeld, a Y Combinator-backed company that’s building social apps to make the internet more fun.

In this episode we talk about:
• “What the kids are using these days” and all things Generation Z.
•The projects that Tiffany and Drake started while still in high school.
•“Digital influencers” on Instagram, what Gen Z thinks of them, and why you would start one. Also — why any of this has anything to do with fake plants.
