7 yeo, tc 460

Needs:
- Hard and exciting technical challenges
- Push my limits (WLB is not a requirement - yet)
- Med risk appetite (on visa - so no vaporware)
- No need for immediate cash
- Looking for growth (career as well as option/rsu)

_____ FINTECH _____
Betterment
Coinbase
Numerai
Robinhood
Wealthfront

_____ GIG _____
AirBnb
Lyft

_____ LOGISTICS _____
WayMo (Google)
FlexPort
someSelfDrivingStartup (Nuro AI, Driver AI, Uber ATG, etc)

- Went through breakOutList and several other hotStartups list. Looking for companies that have potential to 10x revenue in the next 10 years.
- FANG not in this list since I doubt think they will 10x in next 10 years.
- AI startups: not sure how these guys will compete against faang/msft without data and compute advantages.

Looks like there are not a lot of options around. Did I miss any other obvious choices?

      Atleast a couple of cloud providers are expected to see 10x revenue growth over 10years.

        It does - A lot - and I thoroughly enjoyed my time here. But being post 2015 joinee, the sweat-to-rsu conversation-rate is not great since uncertainties have reduced.

        OP
        Are you talking about cloud provider growth? Or reasoning about faang not being in the list?
