YC partners will be visiting 11 countries this fall to meet with founders and learn more about how we can be helpful to international startup communities.
In our Summer 2016 batch, about 30% of the startups we funded were based outside the US before YC. And in the past year, some of the fastest growing companies we’ve worked with were started outside the US.
We want to meet and fund the best founders, no matter where in the world they’re from. We hope to see you while we're on the road.
