YC cofounder Jessica Livingston interviewing Mark Zuckerberg at Startup School 2009.

We believe startups are a good thing for the world. At Y Combinator (YC) we’re constantly trying to figure out how to support innovative startups, and many of them are being started here in China. Since China is the fastest growing tech ecosystem in the world and a massive center of new innovations - we want to meet more founders from China!

Come and learn how Y Combinator can help you start your startup. Whether you are in the idea phase, product market fit phase or growth phase, we want to meet you. Startup School has been the first stop for founders to learn what it takes to build and run a successful tech company. We have brought in famous founders to share their secrets. Speakers at Startup School have included famous founders such as Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn), Brian Chesky (AirBnB), Ryan Petersen (Flexport), Emnett Shear (Twitch), Sam Altman (Loopt and President of YC), and of course Jessica Livingston (Y Combinator) & Paul Graham (Y Combinator).

We are excited to bring Startup School to Beijing!

You will hear first hand from Sam Altman, President of YC and the founders of YC companies Airbnb and Stripe as well as founders of YC companies from China, such as Raven Tech (acquired by Baidu in 2017), Strikingly (W13) and many more. At this event, you can meet the Y Combinator partners and learn how YC can help you in China. There will also be hundreds of other tech founders from Beijing and around China, you may even meet your new cofounder at the event!

About Y Combinator

Y Combinator (YC) is a three month program that also provides seed funding for startups. Seed funding is the earliest stage of venture funding a company can receive. Combined with advice, mentoring and funding we hope to be able to accelerate companies past the earliest phase. This usually means get you to a point to where you’ve built something impressive enough to raise money on a larger scale to grow your business.

Y Combinator started in 2006 and since then has accelerated and funded over 1500 startups, helping to create large companies such as Airbnb, Twitch, Stripe, Dropbox, Coinbase, and Cruise. Y Combinator has been hailed as the the Harvard University of startups.

关于Y Combinator

Y Combinator(YC)给创业公司提供3个月的创业辅导以及种子资金(即风投给创业公司最早期的投资)。在这3个月期间,我们会和创业公司创始人紧密合作,为公司提供发展建议和专业辅导,并投入种子资金。这些能够推动创业公司度过早期的成长阶段,建立优秀的产品雏型,帮助他们在完成YC的培训项目后能够获得后续的融资。

自2006年成立起,YC已经孵化和资助了1500多个创业公司,其中许多已经成长为知名科技公司,例如Airbnb, Twitch, Stripe, Dropbox, Coinbase和Cruise等。YC也因此被昵称为创业公司的哈佛大学。
