The Y Combinator Startup School event on Friday, 27 October was a fantastic opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones but undoubtedly the stars of the show of that evening were the 3 startup pitches we heard.
All 3 of these cool startups probably deserve their own video, but at the very least I wanted to give them all a one-liner shout-out.
The first was Gignite.ai. Their Founder, Jon, who had flown in from Singapore showed us a demo of their product - which is free to use, by the way - that allows you to convert your prompts into high-fidelity wireframes for your next website or app idea. They have a paid service that allows you to customize those designs based on your UI kit. They’re soon launching a prompt-based editing tool as well.
The second was Simeon with his demo for Aiphoria.world. Simeon and his team have built a social media platform geared toward ‘AI content creators’. Yes, that is now a term. It allows you to use multiple AI language models like ChatGPT, DALL-E, Stable Diffusion, and others to create content and publish it within the platform, and share it with your network. It’s technically a very cool platform and I personally am a fan of the design.
The third was Nat from Trash Lucky. His platform is perhaps the most immediately impactful of the three. To put it in simple terms, they help you convert your recyclable trash into lucky-draw opportunities. If that’s not a reason to recycle, I don’t know what is!
Shout-out to Ted and the Y Combinator Community for highlighting these startups that continue to amaze us with the ground-breaking work they’re doing in their respective fields. If you haven’t already, I strongly encourage you to join their Line and LinkedIn communities.
