EquipmentShare Makes Y Combinator’s Top Companies of 2019
Once again, EquipmentShare landed on Y Combinator’s Top Companies list, claiming spot #37 of 102. EquipmentShare graduated from startup incubator Y Combinator in the winter of 2015. The list ranks the top-valued YC alum since its start in 2005, including high-profile companies such as Airbnb, Dropbox and Reddit.
EquipmentShare Celebrates Five Years
Throughout the past month, we’ve had a dedicated team testing a new EquipmentShare Product called Rapid Rents. Let’s say a contractor rents equipment for a project, but doesn’t need it for a few days or until the project reaches a certain point. The equipment sits, unused and idle, on the contractor’s jobsite—and that costs him money. Rapid Rents solves this money-wasting problem.
Rapid Rents makes it easy for contractors to rent the unused equipment sitting on other contractors’ jobsites. This way, contractors can maximize their rental equipment use and reduce their rental costs. In October, the Rapid Rents team did some software beta-testing with a crew in Arkansas, and the team has another beta-testing run planned with a client in Illinois. Rapid Rents is ramping up. Check back in the near future for a progress update on this new Product of EquipmentShare’s.
