Startup Series: 10 Things I Learnt from Y Combinator
|Time:||18:00 - 20:00|
|Venue:||P1402, Innovation Centre, AC1 City University of Hong Kong|
Speaking of accelerator programs at Silicon Valley, some people think that there are only two kinds of them: Y Combinator, or the rest. Best known as the most prestigious accelerator program at the Valley, Y Combinator only accepts about 2% of applicants.
Y Combinator has funded over 800 startups since 2005. Nevertheless, merely two startups from Hong Kong have made it: 9gag and TeamNote.
9gag belongs to the 2012 batch while TeamNote the most recent one. WTIA is honored to invite the founders of both start-ups, Ray Chan and Roy Law, to offer a sharing for our members and friends about how they benefited from being a Y Combinator-backed startup.
Moreover, founder of Coachbase, Keith Rumjahn, will also show up to share his experience with another top accelerator program, Techstars, which he participated in 2013.
