Need to process payments?

There's a YC-funded startup working on payment processing done right.  They're already processing payments for a lot of other YC startups, and now they're looking to expand their private beta to some more companies.

If you're a US company that wants to start processing payments soon or is willing to switch payment processors, send them an email at

The product is developer focused, which is a dramatic departure from the status quo in the payments business. It has been getting rave reviews from the companies that have been using it.

Late applications for summer 2010 have all been considered

We've now read all the late applications for summer 2010 and contacted the groups we wanted to talk to in person, so if you submitted a late application and you haven't heard from us by now, that means we're not going to fund you this summer. Please don't let that get you down, because it is much harder (about 3x harder) for a late application to be accepted. We saw plenty of late applications we would have invited to interviews if they'd applied as part of the regular process. We hope groups that applied late will consider applying again for the next YC cycle, whose application deadline will be this fall.

Invitations sent for Work at a Startup

We've just sent out all the invitations for Work at a Startup. If you applied, please check your email and rsvp using the link we sent you.

(If you don't see the email, check your spam folder.)

It looks like it should be a good event. We have around 35 YC-funded startups lined up to present, at all different stages. As far as we know, nothing like this has been done before, so we are interested to see all the different presentations ourselves.

Unfortunately we received a lot more requests for invitations than we have room for in our building, so we couldn't invite even some people whom some founders had rated as "excellent." Next time we do this, we may try to find a bigger space.
