Stephen Sye and Mike Pfeifer – REALlist Startups

Mar 22, 2021

Five years of Delaware startups.

When published the inaugural RealLIST Startups in 2017, 10 ten young and exciting local companies we listed included companies that are still going strong: DeliveryCircle (our first #1 RealLIST startup), WhyFly (#3) and Carvertise (#5). It also included a company that’s going strong under a different name, TheraV (which came in at #7 as Vibrating Therapeutic Apparel), and a few that have faded away — whatever happened to GoSend, SimUCare and Chronicle? Seriously, if you know, drop us a line.

A lot of Delaware startups are launched through the University of Delaware’s Horn Entrepreneurship program, which holds one of the biggest pitch competitions in the state with Hen Hatch. This year is no different, but our list this year also includes filmmakers, a pair of Goldey-Beacom College athletes and a trio of gamers.
