Twice a year, Y Combinator invests a small amount of money ($125K) in a large number of startups. They have two batches per year – one from January through March and one from June through August. Only a few Dutch startups have participated but what they lack in numbers, they make up for in strength—the Dutch have created billions of dollars in value for the program, known for birthing companies like Airbnb, Stripe, and Dropbox.
We have scheduled Eric Migicovsky, Partner of Y Combinator, for an online ask-me-anything (AMA) session, Tuesday, March 9 at 5 PM CET. He will provide an introduction to YC, share what he looks for in startups to invest in and answer any questions you might have—LIVE. The session is space limited, and open only to registered founders, (student) entrepreneurs and moonlighters. You do not need to have an immediate interest in applying to YC.
Register for the AMA with Eric Migicovsky by smashing the button below and optionally share some information about the idea or startup you're working on when you're interested to apply for Y Combinator with the support of DutchTechSF and a group of YC alumni, experienced entrepreneurs and venture capital investors.
Note: Due to the COVID-19 situation, the Summer 2021 batch will be remote, which makes for an ideal opportunity to participate. Sifted: Lockdown has forced the famed US accelerator to move online for the first time, opening up a new opportunity for European founders.
