Every year, thousands of startups apply to Y Combinator, hoping to join the ranks of alumni like Dropbox, Airbnb, Stripe, and Reddit. But the application process is tough - 99% of applicants don’t get in. Those startups that get accepted join a unique and powerful accelerator. They get into a 3 month program that helps many of them change the trajectory of their business. They work with experts and startup veterans to develop their product, sharpen their vision, and hone their marketing strategy prep for the acclaimed YC demo day. For many, the most valuable part of YC is the community of alumni they join. A community which by the way includes Bulletin, Burrow, Cleanly, REZI, Paperspace, WayUp, and The Lobby... the founders of which have joined us on previous Stacklist panels. Thinking about applying? Then join us on February 20th as Y Combinator alumni share their advice on the application process, and what to expect before, during, and after the intensive 3-month program.
