i have two questions please,

  1. why did not yet attach the filed account for your startup?
  2. how were you recognised in Y-combinator?

Hi Maya,

  1. By “filed account”, do you mean income statement/audited account? If yes, I have that and I can definitely add it.

  2. I got to interview stage of YC on their last batch, and was recently sent an email again to apply for the current batch saying I was amongst 10% of companies that applied worldwide on the last batch.

yes, this is what i refer to for filed accounts. Make sure if you are not within the UK, currencies are converted.

Best of luck


Endorsement received! Thanks
