Funny: Software bundling

You can tell this is from the 1990s (notice the floppies!), but still good. The New Yorker cartoons never fail.

Startup Yoda: The man behind Y Combinator

October 10, 2016 Leave a comment

Another good article from the New Yorker, this time about Sam Altman, the head of Y Combinator. It’s full of great quotes and numbers, including:

  • 13k software companies applied to YC this year; ~240 get in (2x harder than Stanford)
  • Collectively, YC companies are worth $80B (5x growth in last 5 years).
  • A quote from a slide titled: “VCs: Soulless Agents of Satan or Just Clumsy Rapists”

Well worth the read.
