HireArt (YC W12) founder Elli Sharef on not letting fear stop you from applying to YC

by Y Combinator3/26/2014

We asked HireArt founder Elli Sharef if she had any advice for YC applicants. 

Her advice: “If you’re thinking of applying my best advice is: Just do it. You may get in or you may not, but at least you’ll have tried. Being scared of rejection should not dissuade you from applying — if you’re going to be an entrepreneur, you’re going to have to put yourself in many situations in which rejection is a real possibility, so this is a great place to start.” 

The application deadline for YC S14 is this Friday, March 28. Apply here.
