Welcome, ACLU

We are delighted to be funding the ACLU as a non-profit in our Winter 2017 batch. The ACLU will have full access to the Y Combinator network and community, and they will present at Demo Day in March. We are hopeful that the YC community will join us in supporting this important work. In particular, if you’re an engineer and want to spend some time helping them out, let us know.

Welcome Daniel, Nicole, Stephanie, Steven and Tatyana!

We’re excited to welcome five new members of the YC team: Daniel Gross, Nicole Cadman, Stephanie Simon, Steven Chan and Tatyana Veremyova.

We’re close to a tipping point where technology will let us make clean water extremely abundant and cheap. We’d love to help founders working on this problem get there faster. We’re reviewing applications on a rolling basis so you can apply any time.
