Following up on my Silicon Valley map post and the one about early stage startups in San Francisco I wanted to post about all of the early stage startups operating in Silicon Valley today.

🗺 Where is Silicon Valley?

Silicon Valley is basically from the San Francisco peninsula down to San Jose. For our purposes I'm defining Silicon Valley as these cities:

💸 How do you define "early stage startup"?

There are a few filters I used to determine if a company was an early stage startup. "Early stage" and "startup" can mean a million different things to a million different people but here we go:

  • The company has raised Venture Capital money.
  • The company was founded in 2018 or later.
  • The company has raised a Angel, Pre Seed, Seed or Series A fundraising round since January 1st, 2020.

This leaves out companies that are bootstrapped (talking about you Indiehackers), raised a Series A before 2020, Series B and later companies, companies founded years ago but raised money recently and more. For the purposes of this post it was helpful confines and we still have a ton of data to go off :)

Without further ado, here's the giant list of..

📈 Early Stage Silicon Valley Startups

Without further ado here's the full list. To search, filter and find more info about each company including job listings try logging in to the Employbl dashboard :) It's free to get started.

Anjuna Anjuna protects applications and data from insiders by seamlessly encrypting everything end to end with Secure Enclaves. Our approach requires no application or operational changes. Enclaves are a hardware-based CPU security technology supported by all major vendors. Enclaves require re-building applications with low level coding. Ajnuna runs applications in enclaves with no changes. When applications run with Anjuna, sysadmins and hackers with root privileges cannot access application data on the network, in memory or in storage. Secure enclaves are positioned to quickly become the ubiquitous standard for securing enterprise applications and data. But until now, implementing them has been both time-consuming and expensive. The need to rewrite applications with vendor-specific SDKs has put the hardened protection of secure enclaves out of reach of most IT organizations. Anjuna Enterprise Enclaves bring a “lift and shift” approach that harnesses the power of secure enclave technology without requiring changes to applications or operations. Anjuna sees five key requirements that must be met to allow for large-scale deployment of secure enclaves within an enterprise or cloud environment: 1. Adoption should be simple and straightforward 2. Full stack coverage 3. Protection for storage and networks-anywhere and everywhere 4. Enterprise-class deployment capabilities 5. The ability to authenticate and confirm the legitimacy of enclaves Palo Alto $42,120,000
