Our world doesn't stand still and is trying to evolve rapidly from day to day. That's why we can observe the steadily appearing of developing innovative projects everywhere. I'm interested in companies that are connected with high technologies and can surprise by innovation.
And what about you, friends? What startups do you find attractive ( I mean, in which industries they should be)? Thank you for your replies.

    Uber. The company achieved unicorn status in August 2013 and its valuation has since grown to $66 billion, more than any other tech company by at least $20 billion.

    I like companies that are disrupting the statuesque.  Companies like Uber and Air B&B are good examples but there are some legal and accounting service firms that are also along the same lines.  Bitcoin is another good example. 

    Most of these companies are actually having to break laws / regulations in order to operate but the laws they are breaking severed, to an extent, a protectionist function.  After showing their value to society at large it becomes politically impossible to enforce the regulations because the people suddenly see the cost the public has paid for those regulations and sees a cheaper more efficient alternative.

    It amazes me how economics can change long held social, political and regulatory beliefs.

    First of all the startups can give you a unique opportunity to affect the history and of course earn good amount of money.
    I think that now cybersecurity projects are successful and popular: Duo Security, Cybereason, CrowdStrike...

    If I were to choose based from my expertise, I'd go for any innovative apps that help with ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), especially in the field of manufacturing. Right now, I'm really curious about block chain technology and its huge potential to disrupt the current status quo.

    Sometimes I think that maybe it doesn't matter in what industries startups work. The main thing is an interesting catchy idea which is able to help improve the living conditions of the whole society or a certain category of people.

    I like companies Appkodes, They are providing on demand website clone script. Appkodes Clone script is the best option for entrepreneurs, Clone scripts are the mightiest boon for the ecommerce start-ups who are not technical based.

    Appkodes became too much popular on demand from the many passionate entrepreneurs keen towards a perfect user friendly ecommerce website. Such clone scripts in Appkodes almost serves all the categories of E-commerce namely b2b (business to business), b2c (business to customer) and c2c (customer to customer).

    Startups are attractive when they solve a major problem, are first to the field or solve a problem that the already existing leader has.

    Startups or entrepreneurship starts with solving a problem thus creating value, it can be from anything to everything.
