This fall, we will be hosting interviews for the Winter 2020 batch in Paris for startups based in Western Europe. Interviews will take place from November 5-7 and are like regular YC interviews in every way. The application is the same, as well as what we look for in the application and the criteria for acceptance.

Accepted companies will join the YC Winter 2020 batch immediately. The in-person program starts in January in Mountain View, California, but funding and access to YC partners and resources happens right away.

To date, we have funded over 175 companies from Western Europe, including Front, Algolia, and GitLab. We look forward to funding more.

The deadline to apply is September 25, which is the same deadline for all startups applying to YC.

Apply here.

We look forward to meeting you soon! If you have any questions, send us an email at
