Twice a year (fall and spring), we visit cities and universities around the world. Our goal is to meet founders and learn how we can be helpful to startups both in and outside of Silicon Valley.
Below is a list of the cities we are visiting this fall. We’ll update the list as we add locations. In each of these cities, you’ll get a chance to meet people in the YC community (either the YC team or alumni). We’ll be hosting talks and one-on-one office hours.
If you are starting a startup or have questions about YC, we want to meet you.
If we’re not visiting your city this fall and you’d like us to come in 2018, let us know. We believe startups will be a continued driver of innovation and economic growth, and we hope to see more startups start in places that haven’t historically been thought of as technology hubs.
