How to Get Accepted to Y-Combinator | Jeffrey Garoon, COO of FlowCommand


Register here!

Getting into Y-Combinator is hard. It doesn’t just require you to have a potentially billion-dollar business, you also need to know:

  • How to describe it well
  • What’s important to talk about, and
  • How to frame your imaging for the YC audience

In this workshop, we will work through a few successful example applications — including Jeff’s! — to discuss what made them successful. Following this, we will have a Q&A session to answer questions that you may have about your own applications or about application framing to help you prepare for the October 2nd deadline.


Any companies that have not raised a Series-A round and are interested in applying to accelerators
