Launch HN: Prometheus (YC W19) – Remove CO2 from Air and Turn It into Gasoline


Hi HN! I’m Rob, Founder of Prometheus. We’re removing CO2 from the air and turning it gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel. Since we use zero-carbon electricity from sources like solar and wind to make our fuel, there are no net CO2 emissions when you use it.

An article about us came up on HN recently and people seemed interested (https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=19792412), so we thought it would be good to try to answer some of the questions we saw there and try to dive in some more to any questions that follow!

The only inputs to make the fuel are CO2 and water (both from the air) and electricity. The only outputs are fuel and oxygen. One way to think about it is that making fuel is reverse combustion. The process isn’t super efficient (we expect 50-60% overall efficiency at maturity), but it turns out that... show more

Launch HN: Bottomless (YC W19) – Coffee Restocked with a Smart Scale


Hello, HN! We're Michael and Liana, co-founders of Bottomless (https://bottomless.com)

Bottomless automatically re-stocks coffee using a smart scale. Users leave their coffee on the scale, then we detect the perfect time to trigger re-orders. We ship the scale for free when customers buy their first bag.

We met in college, and bonded over talking about businesses we could build together. You could say we've kept in touch since then: we're now married. Bottomless was born out of our frustration managing our household stock levels. We always seemed to be running out of one thing or another.

When we thought about it, we realized that restocking was a universal problem.

But if this was such a big problem, why was there no great solution? Subscriptions should be a solution, but they don’t work well for items that aren’t used on a set sch... show more


 

Launch HN: Axdraft (YC W19) - Legal documents for startups in minutes


Hi HN! We are Yuriy and Oleg, founders of Axdraft (https://business.axdraft.com/en/business). Axdraft offers free legal documents for startups.

We have built Axdraft, because we believe that sometimes founders don’t need 20-page ironclad contract, 2 weeks of negotiations and detailed explanation of all risks. On early stages you just want to have a good, balanced agreement fast to move the deal forward while it's hot. The biggest difficulty here is that lawyers push us to perceive contracts as unique and, therefore, not possible to automate. Usually, by saying unique, they mean that there are 20-50 possible variations of a clause in the contract.

We are a team of brothers, who combine legal and tech expertise, Yuriy was a lawyer for almost 8 years at one of top law firms in Europe and when he started noticing that even the most complex leg... show more


 

Launch HN: Mudrex (YC W19) – Automated Trading Without Code


Hello, HN!

We're Rohit, Edul, Prince, Alankar and Snehil. We’re building Mudrex (https://mudrex.com).

Mudrex helps traders automate their trading without having to code and spend a lot of time and money building infrastructure. Though we have started with cryptocurrency trading first, our goal is to help anyone who wants to get into automated trading or investing across any asset class.

We had been trading cryptocurrencies for some time and were not able to track trading opportunities across 1000s of currency pairs for 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. We thought of automating our trades, but faced challenges like being unable to access historical data, building a testing framework to test strategies on historical or live data, and maintaining connections and orders on multiple exchanges. Also, since it was all coded we were not able to quickly iterate on tr... show more

Launch HN: GoLinks (YC W19) – Internal short links for teams


Hello HN!

We’re Jorge, Kevin and Sean and we’re building GoLinks (https://www.golinks.io).

GoLinks is a platform that allows you to easily manage and share links by letting teams create a short link for any internal URL within a company. These links are easy to remember and share, so you don't have to bookmark or copy and paste them in emails.

Each day we use and share hundreds of links to get our jobs done, without considering how long it takes to access and share these resources. It’s one reason why many of us leave tabs open in our browser: we don’t want to spend the 5 to 10 steps to navigate back to that important page. With GoLinks, you’ll be able to deep-link directly into any application with just a simple keyword entered into your address bar. This allows links to be conversational. For example, one employee can create th... show more

Launch HN: Fuzzbuzz (YC W19) – Fuzzing as a Service


Hey HN,

We’re Everest, Andrei and Sabera, the founders behind Fuzzbuzz (https://fuzzbuzz.io) - a fuzzing as a service platform that makes fuzzing your code as easy as writing a unit test, and pushing to GitHub.

Fuzzing is a type of software testing that generates & runs millions of tests per day on your code, and is great at finding edge cases & vulnerabilities that developers miss. It’s been used to find tens of thousands of critical bugs in open-source software (https://bugs.chromium.org/p/oss-fuzz/issues/list), and is a great way to generate tests that cover a lot of code, without requiring your developers to think of every possibility. It achieves such great results by applying genetic algorithms to generate new tests from some initial examples, and using code coverage to trac... show more


 

Launch HN: OurWorldInData (YC W19 Nonprofit) – Data on World’s Largest Problems


Hi HN!

We’re Hannah, Esteban, Jaiden and Max, the founders of Our World in Data (https://OurWorldInData.org). We’re a nonprofit in the YC W19 batch.

Our World in Data is a website that shows how and why global living conditions and the earth's environment are changing. Is the world becoming more violent? Is an end to poverty possible? It's hard to know because daily news focuses on negative single events, and misses long-lasting changes that reshape the world.

We’re a group of researchers from the University of Oxford trying to solve this problem. We bring together data and research from many different sources often buried under jargon in static, outdated documents. We present a global perspective on living conditions and environmental change through interactive data visualizations and short explainers.

Launch HN: Modern Labor (YC W19) – Paying People to Learn to Code


Hi HN,

We are Modern Labor (https://modernlabor.com). We pay you to learn to code. We take people with little or no software skills and pay them a livable wage [1]for 5 months while they learn to code, using our content, most of which is open source. In return graduates pay us 15% of their income for 2 years if they are earning over $40,000.

The company is born out of a phenomenon I’ve been fascinated with for a long time: many people wake up every day at 7am to work at a low-paying job but they often have difficulty completing a class that might help their future. For some people, it might just come down to money. A job pays now, a class pays off in the future and only maybe. For many reasons--time, energy, motivation, financial pressures--many choose or are forced to choose the job that pays now and their long-term income sometimes suffers as a result.... show more
