BuildZoom is seeking to revolutionize the $1 trillion construction industry. We came out of Y Combinator in '13, and have raised venture capital funding from some of the world’s most respected investors including; Y Combinator, Founder's Fund, Formation 8 and 8VC.
We've discovered that construction is currently 10% of the world's GDP, and we are currently distributing over $1 billion/year in projects, with over 1 million website visitors per month in the United States alone. We are on pace to reach ~$2.3 billion in GMV this year. With the tap of a button, we will send 3 or more contractors to your door, in as little as an hour. We support virtually any construction project - commercial or residential - from a small electrical outlet installation to custom built homes.
However, the best thing about BuildZoom isn’t our product, it’s our incredible team. We maintain a fun, supportive environment focused on learning, teaching, and building cool things.
By gathering and analyzing information on 3.5 million licensed contractors and 100 million building permits, the company has brought new levels of transparency and accountability to a notoriously difficult industry.
Why? It's a question you should ask yourself often. Are you spending your brief moment in the universe focused on what matters most?
We ask ourselves this question every day. We think what matters most is the well-being of oneself and one's loved ones. Don't believe us? Tell us how much time you spend thinking about anything else next time you or someone you care about is sick.
The best minds of our generation are building companies to peddle mobile ads, share photos, and enable governments to spy on their citizens. The global internet/mobile infrastructure gives us the ability, and the responsibility, to solve many of humankind's most challenging problems.
It's why we're building the Human Diagnosis Project, a single open system that maps any human health problem to its possible diagnoses. Join us in building the future of medicine.
Drive Motors (YC, Winter 2016) is growing and we're looking for driven sales superstars to join our team!
We work with hundreds of trailblazing dealerships across the US, representing all major US brands. We are adding more every day.
Dealer distribution: We have built relationships with individual dealerships across the Bay Area for our initial dealer base. As we have grown, many individual dealers are referring us across their dealership group for rapid inventory expansion.
Consumer distribution: In addition to having our own consumer-facing web property, we also integrate with dealers' existing websites, allowing dealers to leverage their existing website traffic to convert buyers directly.
We are also in discussions with additional partners to embed our "Buy Now with Drive" button across more properties.
Our customers are researchers at leading pharma/biotech/academic labs all over the world. Some of our largest user bases exist at institutions like Stanford, Columbia, University College London, and thousands more.
We are busy building a platform that will help life-science researchers manage resources in their labs, streamline communication among lab members, discover and review products, store data, and more. This is no small undertaking. If we succeed we will fundamentally accelerate the pace of scientific discovery. If you wanted to use your technical skills on real world problems that make a difference to real people, here is your chance.
You will be a part of a small super-smart closely-knit team. Ajoy and Jayant know each other from their days at IIT (10+ years). Adam and Jayant know each other from the time they were both at Columbia University (5+ years). We get along really well and are looking for people who are ridiculously smart, friendly, and want to work hard to make a difference.
You will work out of our sunny office in downtown Palo Alto [https://www.quartzy.com/careers] with great perks, a fun-loving team, and an opportunity to work on something huge.
Since developers often do not have any meaningful exposure to the life-sciences market I think that it is worthwhile to give an example of the size of the opportunity. Consider Veeva Systems' recent IPO [http://techcrunch.com/2013/10/16/veeva-ipo/]. Veeva develops collaboration tools for large pharma. Stunningly their market cap is $2.5B after raising only $7M. We are tacking an opportunity larger than Veeva.
The Quartzy platform creates an online distribution channel for the life-sciences market. Disrupting the life-sciences market is a huge opportunity. We are VC-backed with funding from Khosla Ventures along with prominent angels like David Sacks, Jeremy Stoppelman and others.
Help independent creators make a living doing what they love! Every year, millions of customers use Creative Market to bring their creative projects to life with ready-to-use design content from independent creators around the world.

Our competitors are largely media companies that put their stock art albums online. They have done little to evolve what they do and how they do it.
We are a tech company at heart. We're leveraging this to build things like... our recommendation engine which creates a taste profile for every single person that hits our site... a comprehensive payment processing system that lets us learn buying behaviors from our users and looks for fraud patterns... and an entire framework that powers our marketplace & site using work we've done building COLOURlovers.com to several million registered users.
Kisan Network is a Y Combinator and Thiel Fellowship backed online platform for Indian agriculture. We enable small and marginal farmers across the country to sell their produce directly to businesses, using their smartphone. No middlemen are involved in the entire process as Kisan Network takes care of everything else, from the farm to the buyer’s doorstep. There are more than 100 million cultivators in India whom we need to serve and we have an ambitious vision for an open and free online agricultural market in the country, that clocks in at around $200 Billion.
Our investors, which includes Y Combinator and Thiel Foundation, agree with us. We are the first and only (till date) from an Asia focused startup to be a part of both Y Combinator and the Thiel Fellowship program. Kisan Network has been also covered by the likes of Forbes, TechCrunch, CNET, The Economic Times and numerous other national and local dailies.
We have a team comprising of both 20 years of experience in technological applications for rural distribution in India and also, prior startup experience in the technology product space.

Founded in 2012 by educators and technologists who knew that widely available educational apps could improve both teaching and learning, but that tools to deploy and secure the applications were simply unavailable, Clever is the platform that powers technology in the classroom. Today, almost half of the K-12 schools in the U.S. trust Clever to secure their student data as they adopt learning apps in the classroom
In 2014, Clever won the ‘Crystal Clear’ award by the Digital Innovation Learning Awards. It is also the trusted provider of the American Federation of Teachers, who uses Clever to secure its own ‘Share my Lesson’ platform with its teacher members. Backed by Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Partners, and GSV Capital, Clever currently has 100+ employees and is based in San Francisco, California.
Clever is backed by top-tier investors, so we’re lucky enough to have the financial freedom to build the company we’ve always wanted to work for. We go to work every day knowing we’re helping to improve education for millions of kids. It’s a cool job perk (way better than free meals, though we have those, too).
