About Y Combinator: Y Combinator is a startup seed fund based in Mountain View, CA. In 2005, Y Combinator developed a new model of startup funding. Twice a year they invest a small amount of money in a large number of startups. The startups move to Silicon Valley for 3 months, and the YC partners work closely with each company to get them into the best possible shape and refine their pitch to investors. Each batch culminates in Demo Day, when the startups present their companies to a carefully selected audience of investors. Y Combinator has invested in over 1,500 companies including Dropbox, Airbnb, Stripe, Reddit, Instacart, Machine Zone and Docker. The combined market capitalization of YC companies is currently over $80B.
