Quartzy Scores $1.2M To Help Life Scientists Stay Organized (@harjeet in @WSJ)

A Y Combinator partner, Harjeet Taggar, says Quartzy was the first life sciences start-up to be accepted into the incubator. While the concept of Quartzy may seem niche, compared to some of the broadly appealing consumer brands that launched at Y Combinator, such as travel brands Hipmunk and Airbnb, Taggar explains: “When we see founders who are working on some problem that they know about, it excites us. Every huge opportunity started as something that may have seemed smaller to begin with, even Microsoft.”
