Y Combinator Startup School accepted UATAG to the Advisor track, offering а 10-week online course. As part of the Advisor track, UATAG will be a member of a group of about 25 companies with an expert advisor. UATAG is going to compete for $10,000 in equity-free funding to 100 of the most promising companies.
This year YC’s educational program will begin August 27, offering a free 10-week set of video lectures that educate founders about how to grow and manage a startup. The classes will run until October 25th and there will be two lectures each Tuesday and each will be posted to the online within 24 hours.
Lectures will be delivered live in Mountain View, California at Y Combinator’s headquarters and then made available for viewing online. The speakers will include YC co-founder Paul Graham, YC Partners like President Sam Altman and CEO Michael Seibel, as well as notable founders from the startup community WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum and others.
For the first time ever Y Combinator Startup School is going to give $10,000 in equity-free funding to 100 of the most promising companies that join the course. Those companies will also receive a video interview with a YC partner later in the year for advice or aid in applying to a future batch.
Recall, that on September 5-7, our team will be at the TechCrunch Disrupt 2018, presenting UATAG solution at the Startup Alley in San Francisco. So, we plan to stay for a few more days to combine these two events and to attend at least two lectures of ten in-person at Y Combinator Startup School headquarter in California.
In general, Y Combinator's Startup School is a community of high-quality entrepreneurs and industry professionals. And all of us, in the UATAG team, are happy to plug into this network. We know, it will be the highest quality place for us to talk with people about UATAG future development.
