"Whether you think you can, or think you can't--you're right." - Henry Ford


Startups of the Year, 2021

Hello there, Hacker,

Vision, strength, determination, resilience… these are all key building blocks to moving the world forward. People with these skills create solutions, not only muse about problems.

The Startups campaign celebrates the baby companies created by the thinkers and doers that – regardless of what life tossed at them this year— have taken the situation by the horns and came out of it with a business plan and the balls (etc.) to launch it.

I decided to highlight a few of the startups doing well so far. Below is a mini list of some companies in the running with concepts that I personally find interesting!
