Congratulations to the 2024 YC Top Companies!

We’re excited to announce the 2024 YC Top Companies list!

This list features the YC alumni with the highest revenue in 2023 (sorted alphabetically, as revenue is confidential for most startups).

Revenue is the clearest indicator of a startup’s success, and we’re excited to see so many different types of companies represented.

Separately, we have updated our list of currently public YC companies, and YC companies with an exit of over $150M.

A note about the list:

  • The featured companies all generated above a certain threshold of revenue in 2023.
  • The companies opted-in to being featured, so this isn’t 100% reflective of all the YC startups that hit the threshold.
