Accelerators

Y Combinator

In 2005, Y Combinator developed a new model of startup funding. Twice a year we invest a small amount of money (average $18k) in a large number of startups (most recently 84). The startups move to Silicon Valley for 3 months, during which we work intensively with them to get the company into the best possible shape and refine their pitch to investors. Each cycle culminates in Demo Day, when the startups present to a large audience of investors. But YC doesn't end on Demo Day. We and the YC alumni network continue to help founders for the life of their company, and beyond. Since 2005 we've funded over 460 startups, including Loopt, Reddit, Clustrix, Wufoo,Scribd, Xobni, Omgpop, Weebly, Songkick, Disqus, Dropbox, ZumoDrive, Justin.tv,Heroku, A Thinking Ape, Machine Zone, Airbnb, Heyzap, Cloudkick, WePay, Bump,Stripe, CarWoo, MixPanel, Cardpool, Optimizely, AeroFS, E la Carte, and Hipmunk.

Strategic focus: More innovation by cooperation We want to increasingly implement new ideas and developments on the basis of partnerships: In addition to in-house developments such as Entertain, the Media Center and PagePlace, we intend to establish partnerships and joint ventures to produce new services and offerings. We will make greater use of our venture capital company T-Venture in future in order to play a greater role in innovation. In addition, our new "incubator" for start-ups allows us to support innovative business ideas from the earliest stages of their development.
