The 10 Hottest SaaS Startups Of 2021 (So Far)

Wade Tyler Millward

CRN gives a rundown of the 10 hottest software-as-a-service startups so far this year: from CodeSignal, whose software helps recruiters test software development job candidates, to Zuper, the maker of field services deployment software.

Yac

Top Executive: Justin Mitchell, CEO and co-founder

Headquarters: Kissimmee, Fla.

Yac started off 2021 in a big way with a $7.5 million round of funding in January, including money from Slack’s investment wing.
The money should help the company grow its voice and video messages offerings, which aim to cut down on the number of meetings for remote workers, according to Yac’s website. Users can send a message of a photo, video or screen recording with annotations and their own recorded voice, which the company regards as less interruptive than a meeting.

The product integrates with Slack and has a web app for Linux and Chromebooks users.

The company was founded in 2019 and has raised $11 million to date, according to Crunchbase.
