Top 50 Start-ups

Great Linkedin article on top 50.

Why this list of companies is better than other lists of upcoming companies? Because the data Linkedin has available makes for a more clear sense of reality. At least, that’s what they say.

I’m building the office back-room for a Start-up on my current project and I’ve done Start-ups before. It’s fun to see what’s possible.

My favorite companies and their industry disruption:
– Aryaka Networks, your Verizon and Comcast bills will go down.
– Pinterest, gone hightech is tackling machine learning and AI. I didn’t see that coming.
– GRAIL, Bio-technology with $1 Billion of Bill Gates’ money, that has to be on the list.
– CourseRA, providing education to get underemployed back in the game. Nice.
– Uptake, using sensor data to make decisions, this is coming age of internet connectivity, everything and everyone will be connected.
– Wish, direct access to product manufacturers (many in China), if Americans are the low cost consumers they’ve proven to be this will do well.

There were no healthcare disrupters, hmmmmm.

What companies are your favorite?

There is a new service called independent evaluators that focuses on helping business owners and their employees. This new service changes the purchase paradigm by offering a business owner their own buyer’s advocate. A good advocate puts control in the owner’s hands, giving them back control they may have inadvertently given away.

Here are the top four reasons to consider a healthcare buyer’s advocate:
