Why Did We Do This?
As a startup ourselves, we are regular consumers of Y Combinator content - as their advice for startups is arguably the best in the world. We found it challenging to discover new YC content, so we took on the task to manually sort through as much YC content we could get our hands on and make it accessible using Polymer Search.
What Company Leaders and Our Founders Have to Say About Polymer Search
Polymer made it astoundingly easy to start getting insights within a few minutes. My data was pre-processed and then presented in a way that I could just start slicing key correlations right away. After 30 minutes, we got a number of hugely surprising insights about what funding stage, what industry, what company size, and what testing team makeup were most successful in buying and adopting our product. We shifted our outbound and inbound tactics that very day.
Polymer's built-in functionality made it a breeze to uncover insights about what roles have been most affected by startup layoffs during the pandemic. Those insights led to unique content marketing opportunities, earning coverage in TechCrunch and helping the broader site gain national press in the New York Times, WSJ, Bloomberg, Fortune, and other outlets.
As a former AI/ML Tech lead at Google Ads, my vision behind Polymer is to bridge the gap between data science folks and the rest of the organization. Everyone should feel effective, confident, and efficient around data, driving huge and previously unavailable organizational gains.
