What is the Y- Combinator
Y Combinator provides seed funding for startups. Seed funding is the earliest stage of venture funding. It pays expenses of startups while they are getting started. Twice a year the Y Combinator invests a small amount of money in a large number of startups. For three months, the startups move to Silicon Valley where they work intensively to reshape, refine and perfect their pitches to potential investors. Each cycle ends in what’s called Demo Day. This is where startups take the stage to present their companies to carefully selected, invite-only audiences. The mentoring and help for these companies continues for the life of a company.
