2018 is almost upon us and so it is once again time to predict which startups will take the tech industry by storm next year. Who better to ask than the startup experts, the VCs that watch the industry, guide the startups, hear their pitches, and invest in them?
We reached out to a number of top VCs and asked them which startups will boom in 2018. We invited participation from investors from a variety of backgrounds and investing philosophies. This includes some of the top VCs in the Valley (Accel, Andreessen Horowitz, Battery Ventures, Bessemer, Greylock Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, Sequoia).
We included VCs of note who specialize in seed and early rounds (8VC, Bloomberg Beta, BBG Ventures — which backs startups with at least one female founder.) We also asked some top VCs from the startup nation Israel (JVC, OurCrowd) and VCs that have been known for picking hits (like IVP’s Somash Dash). [ Business Insider ]
