What do you do when you have insomnia? Well, of course you… What’s that? Oh. Wait what? Oh yeah. That’s a good idea. Damn. But I meant that you could also… Huh? Oh. Oh man. Yeah. That’s super solid. Truly. Shoot. I totally should have thought of that. What I meant to say was — maybe I should rephrase — what do I do when I have insomnia? That’s right. I spend time sifting through the new Y Combinator alum database to figure out which Oregon companies have been through the most preeminent of startup accelerator programs. Duh.
And so what did my sleep addled self come up with? Well, I’m glad you asked. Here are eight companies from Oregon — among the 1000+ YC alums — who self identified as Oregon companies.
Batch (Summer 2020)
We enable companies that use messaging platforms like Kafka the ability to gain visibility into their queues and most importantly, gain the ability to replay any events that have passed through their bus. Event replay is rooted in event sourcing and while “replay” is often touted as one of the best features of event driven arch, it is difficult and costly to achieve. With our platform, any engineering org can reap the benefits of event replay without breaking the bank.
