Ask HN: Is there a way to browse YC companies, live ones at least?

The name, and a sentence or two explaining what they do. Live ones preferred, but it would also be interesting to see what's been tried. Preferably all on one webpage, for simplicity.

Alternatively, is there any other simple way to browse them?

https://www.ycdb.co is missing at least 1 company (Lob)

source: I work at Lob and we're a YC S13 company

The ability to invest in YC companies unlocks at 5000 points. Just keep making great comments on Hacker News and submitting good links.

Poe's law? Elaborate please.

For some reason I read the title as "Is there a way to invest in YC companies?" It must be my jetlag.

The other answers you got are good ones. Tangential I know, but out of curiosity, what is your use case?

Curiosity, and wondering if I'd stumble upon something useful (to me or to someone I know), and wondering if 'make money' eclipses 'social-good'. But also apprehension, about misuse cases.
