Is there a place I can view what the top startup companies are for this year? I want to get an idea of where I stand with my idea and make sure that it isn’t looking a lot like someone else’s. I want to ensure that my time and investments are not going to be wasted when I have a lot of competition out the gate.
I don't follow enough of them to know but I did find a list you can check out: https://www.excellentwebworld.com/list-of-startup-companies/
There are a vast amount of different startups from different areas of business so you can get an idea of what to watch out for in the coming years.
In the US, the top 30 right now are the following:
The We Company
These lists always change but you can expect bigger names with more money like SpaceX to not be going anywhere anytime soon.
^ of that list, I only heard of maybe 15 of them. I am not surprised to see Pinterest on there. That site has so much pull with Google it is not even funny. I am not sure what Snowflake is at all though. I will have to look into that one.

It is a data cloud warehouse. It is actually projected to see major growth this year. You can read about it more here: https://markets.businessinsider.com/news/stocks/will-snowflake-be-this-years-hottest-ipo-1029322427
It is a company worth keeping an eye on!
SpaceX is probably the biggest I would say. Others that are up there as well include Uber, Pinterest, Lending Club, Jawbone, and Snapchat. As for ones that just started this year, it is too early to project.
