Once again, YC is coming to India! We’re hosting interviews in Bangalore from May 12-14. These will be like regular YC interviews in every way. The application is the same, as well as what we look for in the application and the criteria for acceptance.
Accepted companies will join the Summer 2020 batch immediately. The in-person program starts in June in Mountain View, California, but funding and access to YC partners and resources happens right away.
To date, we have funded 80 companies from India, including ClearTax, Meesho, and Razorpay. In our W20 batch alone, we funded 26 Indian startups — a record for us.
The deadline to apply is March 16, which is the same deadline for all startups applying to YC.
We look forward to meeting you soon! If you have any questions, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
