We've invested in over 3,500 companies with a combined market cap of almost $1T.
About meY Combinator created a new model for funding early stage startups.
Twice a year we invest $500,000 per company 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.
I need help with:
Sourcing founders with a bias for action!
At YC, we invest (time, money and a whole lot of energy) into a ton of great startups. We're always short on great founders who have a bias for action and are prepared to go the distance. Help us find more of them.

I've had my fair share of ups and downs. When it comes to starting startups, no one who hasn't done it can really relate to you.

Cap table & equity management
Setting up a cap table is easy, but setting it up for the distant future is tough. I've set up option pools, trusts, phantom schemes, ESOPs, multi-class cap tables and looked at loads of other structures. I can advise on best practices, and discuss the best options for your unique situation.
