Y Combinator


"Twice a year we invest a small amount of money ($125k) in a large number of startups.

We work 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. We and the YC alumni network continue to help founders for the life of their company, and beyond."

Program overview

To apply to Y Combinator, you just fill out an application form. We invite the most promising groups to meet us, and we make funding decisions afterward.

The YC program lasts for three months. During those three months, founders participate in group office hours every two weeks and can meet with partners for office hours as often as needed.
