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

  • VCs were asked to name companies inside and outside of their portfolios.

  • They delivered an exciting list across industries like fintech, healthcare, edtech and more.

Each year, we reach out to hundreds of VCs at nearly 100 firms 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 portfolio — after all, they liked those startups so much they invested — as well as outside their portfolios — after all, they are the startup experts and can't invest in them all.

And they were also asked to name startups across all stages, particularly earlier-stage companies that are not widely known.

This year, our research was particularly insightful because it's been a tumultuous time in startup land. VCs have grown tighter with investments and startups that were not well-prepared to weather the cold have struggled.

Layoffs have even hit some of the darling industries of 2021 like fintechhealthtech, and proptech.
