Two weeks ago we announced Startup School 2018. Our free, online course will kick off in just three weeks, on August 28th. We also let founders know that 100 of the companies that complete the course will receive $10,000 in equity-free funding from YC.
This year’s course will feature revamped software and all new material which will be added to the extraordinary library of startup content YC has collected over the past two years of Startup School and the many years of working with and writing about startups. This work is being collected at startupschool.org/library.
Are you a software engineer interested in joining a startup? This July 28, come to Y Combinator HQ for our Work at a Startup Expo. You can meet the founders of 35 rapidly growing YC companies and figure out the right startup for you.Jun 21, 2018
Work at a Startup is like a common application for engineers to apply to many YC companies simultaneously. If you’re interested in joining a startup, we hope you’ll create a profile at workatastartup.com.
We launched a Series A program 6 months ago, but we started prototyping the program 6 months before that with a few companies. In that year, we’ve learned a huge amount about what works and what doesn’t work when raising an A. We’re now ready to launch the next phase of the program: working with companies that are ready for a Series A in batches, just like regular YC.Jun 4, 2018
