Category:Y Combinator

English: Y Combinator is an American seed-stage startup funding firm, started in 2005 by Paul Graham, Robert Morris, Trevor Blackwell, and Jessica Livingston. Y Combinator provides seed money, advice, and connections at two 3-month programs per year. In exchange, they take an average of about 6% of the company's equity. Unusual among startup funding firms, Y Combinator provides very little money—$17,000 for startups with 2 founders and $20,000 for those with 3 or more. This reflects Graham's conviction that between free software, dynamic languages, the web, and Moore's Law, the cost of founding a startup has greatly decreased.
