July 29 (Bloomberg) -- Jeff Clavier, founder at SoftTech VC, runs down the list of next big things in tech investing and the companies on his radar. He speaks on “Market Makers.”

Now.

It feels like everything is hot in silicon valley.

You have marketplaces and the sharing economy which is really going across the number of different use cases.

We talked about uber, have another number of companies like home joy that will come and clean your house for $30. $30? give us the rationale.
