Even in a shaky economy, with shrinking venture funds, there are those startup companies out there that are still charting the course forward.
2022 is turning out to be a tough year for both venture-backed and venture-funding-seeking growth firms out there.
"In the first three months of 2022, global funding has fallen 19% to $144 billion from last quarter, according to new data from CB Insights—the largest quarter-over-quarter percentage decline in nearly 10 years."
However, there are still firms out there that have found creative ways to go out and raise capital to fund growth. Those that seem to be doing just fine even in one of the toughest economic environments in recent memory.
Here are three of the ones I am watching:
Evabot - An A.I-powered platform built to help streamline coporate gift-giving. Located in San Mateo, CA, Eva is helping businesses build authentic relationships with their clients by making it easy to send personalized gifts.
Peachy Patients - The Los Angeles, CA-based technology platform founded by Lex Oiler is on a mission to improve patient-healthcare provider relationships. Formally known as Billbox, peachy patients is the developer of a digital payment system designed for patients to pay medical bills while improving their credit scores. The company's system offers online simplified payments and digital invoices, enabling patients to improve their physical, mental, and financial health.
Pav*r - Managing your time can be hard. Especially when there are multiple team members involved, tasks that have to be managed, and a nearly endless amount of communication that has to take place. Take some of that off your plate with Pav*r by managing all of your important event details in one place without ever leaving your Google calendar.
