Very few startups have the potential to become big businesses. There are also very few with innovative ideas.

We compiled a list of our favorite tech startups and asked investors and entrepreneurs to do the same.

Some of the companies we selected are more established than others. We sided with younger, more obscure startups with big-time potential. Some were too stealth to be included.

All of them have fresh concepts with the potential to become industry leaders.

Union Square Ventures led a $2.5 million round of funding in Codecademy

Company: Codecademy

Founders: Zach Sims, Ryan Bubinski

Location: new York, NY

Funding: $2.5 million led by Union Square Ventures

Why it's innovative: Codecademy makes learning basic JavaScript incredibly easy and fun. The first assignment teaches you to write your name in quotes and gets progressively more challenging from there.

In a world where everyone wants to be an entrepreneur and no one can find tech talent, it has huge potential.

Skillshare lets anyone teach a class to anyone who's willing to listen

Michael-Karnjanaprakorn, SkillShare cofounder

Company: Skillshare

Founders: Michael Karnjanaprokorn and Malcom Ong

Location: new York, NY

Funding: Raised about $3.7 million to date, investors include Spark Capital and Union Square Ventures

Why it's innovative: Skillshare wants to turn every address into a classroom and every person into a teacher or student.

"NYU is a great school, but the entire state of new York can be a great university," Karnjanaprakorn tells us. "By the time a teacher is teaching something in school, it's often outdated or irrelevant," he says.  "We're having people who truly understand something and are working in the field teach people what they learned that day."
