Jab khoon pasina ek saath kagaz par chapta hai na … table bed ban jaati hai aur office ghar … bhook pyas bhool jaati hai … baal bachche rul jaate hai … tab jaake saali company banti hai – the most inspiring dialogue from movieRocket Singh- Salesman of the year
Getting into Y Combinator is one of the dreams of every startup founder!!
For newcomers let me tell you what is Y Combinator first
Y Combinator (YC) is an American seed money startup accelerator launched in March 2005. It has been used to launch more than 2,000 companies, including Stripe, Airbnb, CruiseAutomation, DoorDash, Coinbase, Instacart, Dropbox, Twitch, and Reddit. The combined valuation of the top YC companies was more than $300 billion by January 2021. The company’s accelerator program is in Mountain View, California. It’s considered to be one of the most successful startup incubators in Silicon Valley.
Y Combinator created a new model for funding early stage startups.
Twice a year we invest a small amount of money ($125k) in a large number of startups.
It works intensively with the companies for three months, to get them into the best possible shape and refine their pitch to investors. Each cycle culminates in Demo Day when the startups present their companies to a carefully selected, invite-only audience.
But YC doesn’t end on Demo Day. They and the YC alumni network continue to help founders for the life of their company, and beyond.
