Microbiome Therapeutics, Photoshop for Augmented Reality, and Cancer Treatments were some of the ideas presented on Day 2 of the Y Combinator Starter Accelerator Demonstration Day winter 2018. YC is increasingly using its massive class size (141 startups this time) to finance frontier technology and particularly risky biotech moonshots, while tempering the portfolio with more predictable businesses.
