2022 YC Year in Review
Over the past year, we've funded 650+ startups from 40+ countries, welcomed two new public companies, resumed in-person batch events, and so much more. YC's Geoff Ralston looks back at 2022 in our year in review — with an eye on the future.
Congrats to Rigetti Computing (YC S14) on going public!
by Geoff Ralston3/9/2022
Congratulations to Chad and to all of the folks at Rigetti who have worked so hard to get to this point. There’s a ton of quantum distance still to go, but no company and no team is better positioned to make that journey.

We have a new standard deal at Y Combinator. When a company is accepted into the YC batch program, we now invest a total of $500,000. We still invest $125,000 for 7% and now also invest an additional $375,000 on an uncapped safe with an MFN.
Amplitude (W12) is going public
by Geoff Ralston9/28/2021
Today, Amplitude , which waspart of YC’s W12 batch, is going public. Their story of grit, determination, andcreativity, is an epic one.Spenser and Curtis first applied to YC in 2011, but their idea, a new version ofMechanical Turk, did not impress YC’s reviewers at the time, and although theywere clearly brilliant hackers, that first application was rejected.
