Y Combinator is coming to Northwestern on March 3!

Join YC partners and alumni for a talk and Q&A. Hear their stories and find out what it’s really like to start a startup. Food and beverage will be served.

YC will also be hosting one-on-one office hours with teams from 2pm-6pm on March 3. You can sign up for office hours here.

Seating for the talk is limited. RSVP early — priority will be given to Northwestern students, staff and faculty.

About Y Combinator:
Y Combinator is a startup seed fund based in Mountain View, CA. In 2005, Y Combinator developed a new model of startup funding. Twice a year they invest a small amount of money in a large number of startups. The startups move to Silicon Valley for 3 months, and the YC partners work closely with each company to get them into the best possible shape and refine their pitch to investors. Each batch culminates in Demo Day, when the startups present their companies to a carefully selected audience of investors. Y Combinator has invested in over 1000 companies including Dropbox, Airbnb, Stripe, Reddit, Instacart and Weebly. The combined market capitalization of YC companies is currently over $65B.
