About six weeks ago, I was sitting in front of my computer waiting for one email. Not just any email. The email.
We had just flown from Paris to Mountain View for our 10-minute interview at the Y Combinator and it was now over. All we had left to do was wait.
Finally, a couple of hours after the interview, the news finally arrived. We were accepted. The email was so short, but it instantly changed all that we were about to do with our company in the following months.
Since that day, it pretty much has been rush hour every hour of the day and we’ve kept ourselves busy. We’ve been asked a lot how it’s going and what actually happens inside of YC once you’re there.
The famous Mountain View incubator definitely has a reputation of being quite mysterious and we want to share our insider’s view after our first month.
