Many groundbreaking deals have been negotiated here in the past.
The program includes "office hours", where startup founders meet individually and in groups with Y Combinator partners for advice.In September 2016, Y Combinator announced shuffling the deck at the Mountain View startup accelerator again, with Altman announcing that he will now be president of YC Group, which includes Y Combinator, the YC Continuity fund that was launched last October and the YC Research "moon shot" program.Ali Rowghani, Twitter's former chief financial officer and chief operating officer who was put in charge of the YC Continuity Fund when it started, is now CEO of YC Continuity.In 2009, Sequoia Capital led the million investment round into an entity of Y Combinator which would allow the company to invest in approximately 60 companies a year as opposed to their previous 40 companies a year.In September 2013, Paul Graham announced Y Combinator would fund nonprofit organizations accepted into its program after having tested the concept with Watsi (while continuing to fund mostly for-profit startups).In January 2016 Y Combinator announced version 2 of the program, with participating companies receiving k investment for an 1.5% equity stake.
