  • We asked hundreds of top venture capitalists to name the most promising startups of 2022.

  • VCs were asked to name companies in and out of their portfolios.

  • They have delivered an exciting roster in industries like fintech, healthcare, edtech, and more.

Every year, we reach out to hundreds of VCs at nearly 100 companies and ask them to tell us which early-stage startups are the most promising of the year.

VCs were asked to name startups within their portfolios – after all, they liked those startups so much they invested – as well as outside their portfolios – after all, they are the startup experts and cannot invest in all.

And he was also asked to name startups in all stages, especially early stage companies that aren’t very well known.

This year, our research was especially insightful because it’s been a tumultuous time in the startup world. VCs have gotten tighter with investments, and startups that weren’t well prepared to weather the cold have struggled.

The layoffs have even hit some of 2021’s cherished industries like fintech, healthtech, and proptech.
