Updates from YC

We have a few changes about YC to share.

YC Interviews in NYC

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be holding a small number of interviews for the Summer 2019 batch of YC in New York City on February 23. This will be the first in a series of interviews we do in cities outside the Bay Area. We’ll start with New York and will soon announce interview dates for other cities including Bangalore this spring and Tel Aviv in the fall.

Leap Spins Out of YC

In 2017, Cadran Cowansage, a software engineer at YC, started building Leap, an online community for women in tech. Today, Cadran and her two co-founders, Abadesi Osunsade and Kuan Luo, are spinning Leap (now Elpha) out of Y Combinator and launching as an independent company.

YC 120

We’d like to find more curious, creative people who are doing exciting work in emerging fields and give them an opportunity to start building their network. We’ll bring 120 of those people together for a weekend conference in Colorado from Friday, April 26 to Sunday, April 28.

YC at Harvard – 2/4
